you said the stipe was reticulate but I don’t see that? Maybe that was washed out by the flash when the pic was taken? In general your bolete fits what I’d call one of the above names but lacking chemical tests and spore size it’s a guess. Also I’d expect to see a slight brownish pruinosity overlayed on the pale yellow stipe but really not enough resolution to see that either. Nice bolete.
