Boletus subvelutipes group

Common Name: Red-Mouth Bolete

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: Dark Olive Brown

Pore Color: Red

Comments: 

The first thing you should know about this Bolete is that there is alot of variation. Red to red-orange pore surface. Often there is a yellow margin around the red pore surface. The cap and stem can also be shades of orange, brownish, or yellowish. The one thing that should be consistent is that the pores, the flesh, and pretty much the whole mushroom bruises blue.

Poisionous. Will make your stomach very upset.

Lookalikes:  

Boletus luridiformis has a dark brown cap and red pores. Boletus discolor has a cap color that is darker brown near center, fading to yellow-brown towards the margin.

This may not be subvelutipes, as I do not have the specimen. Bottom picture shows little staining in stem when cut.
