Boletus Zelleri or Zeller's Bolete, is a very nice looking, small to medium sized bolete that grows in abundance in coniferous forests of the Pacific Northwest.
The velvety, and sometimes bumpy, red cap, with yellow pores and red stem, makes it a fairly easy bolete to identify.
The pores may or may not bruise blue when the finger nail test is applied, and the cap turns a very dark red or black with age.
It's reported to be edible, but don't risk it if you're not an expert.
