This Bolete will often grow in clusters, and will typically have a small root-like projection that goes into the ground. The pore surface will be a bright yellow. Pores and flesh do not stain. The stem often has a bulbuous base. The cap often cracks in age. 

A drop of ammonia on the cap should yeild a green flash.
