According to the guide North American Boletes, B. smithii has pores that bruise blue. If you push a finger against the pores just hard enough to cause a little damage, then the damaged area should turn blueish.

I don't know this western NA species. But it looks like B. smithii is a good proposal.

I'm sure some our members from out west will weigh in on this one.
