Do the following pictures show the difference
between Boletus mirabilis and Boletus zelleri

(forgetting the newer names)

Leah said (edited):
Yes (Aureo)boletus mirabilis is on top, showing the scruffy, velvety brownish top and kind of wine colored stipe.

Xerocomellus atropurpureus (B. zelleri ) is below, showing the bald, dark purple, almost black cap, and reddish stipe

(Noah Siegel says that Xerocomellus atropurpureus is the most common species of a group that look similar to former Boletus zelleri)

I previously posted a picture of what I thought was
B. mirabilis and Joe and Don indicated that it was B. zelleri
