dont know how many other boletes this is common in. I agree the cap color is off however.
B vermiculosoides pores are really dark when young, (3rd pic) and orangey in first and second. So wont go with a mixed collection yet

No, the bottom photo has a similar wine colored cap and in this younger stage the pore surface is concolorous with the pileus. However, it may be possible that the two specimens are different species, I am not sure.

The bottom photo might be B. vermiculosoides.

Probably not Boletus vermiculosoides

We don’t think it is Boletus vermiculosoides, because the cap is a wine color, not yellow/brown associated with the named species. The pore surface on this particular mushroom could be described as yellow with hints of orange and red, bruising dark. Similarily to B. vermiculosoides the mushroom quickly stains blue.
