Austroboletus subflavidus is characterized by, among other things, a distinctly lacunose stipe, not unlike a few of its cousins such as A. lacunosus, named for possessing that very quality. What you have here is a much thicker, stouter stipe which perhaps started hanging out with the wrong crowd and has ruptured into cracked, peeling sections of stipe tissue. What that makes it, I’m not at all certain, but overall stature and altogether different stipe ornamentation rule out A. subflavidus in my book.
