See NAB-11 (Boletus n. sp.) in Bessette et al, 1999

I am not sure if this has been described yet, but it externaly matches a “new species” NAB-11 in Bessette et al’s “North American Boletes.” That putative n. sp. was also collected in AZ, apparently in the Chiricahua Mts., which shares much of the flora & fauna of the Huachuca Mts. (primarily the northern-most range of many Mexican species; which is why I was there beetle collecting when the shrooms were popping). B. amygdalinus is not (yet?) on the AZ list (see http://www.azfungi.org/checklist/)—not saying much as many spp. are being added every year.

Looks like B. amygdalinus

But with a much paler cap.
