Boletus “marshii” including " a very slight reddish zone " on the stipe.
The only thing going against it is the habitat and area in which it was found.

I agree that it is probably one of the names you have already proposed, but I just want to point out the similarity to B. ‘marshii’ before the red develops.

Well Alan, you could be right but….

Boletus calopus var. frustosus should have some red and reticulation at the stipe apex. Cap color is also a little light for that species.
This is a rather immature specimen but you can see a hint of red starting to develop near the lower part of the stipe which is also more characteristic of B. rubripes.
