Recognized by sight: probably something more closely related to flaviporus.

Recognized by sight: why not? cap color/texture, relative bright pores, good habitat, unstaining; edit: just noticed, is that reddish bruising on the large mushroom’s pores? If so, this must be “boletus” tomentipes, which would not be in “boletus” anymore, but I can’t find a formally transferred name for that.
