Shroom guys, I need help A.S.A.P.!!!!

Ok, so can anyone tell me if these are Boletus bicolor(Two colored bolete)? From the field guide I have and everything I've found online, I believe they are. There's just a small part of me that isn't sure. There is another bolete that looks very much like this one, but is supposed to stain blue immediately after it is bruised. The two colored is supposed to also stain blue, but slowy. In this case, slowly means within 10 seconds. When I touch the underside of the cap firmly with my finger, there is a slight discoloration, and then it begins to turn blue. Within 10 seconds there is a prominate blue spot, but it's not "immediate". The stalks and caps turn color more slowly. Am I safe? If needed, I can take a short video of the bruising and color turning if that would help.

The ones I have found that bruise fast are usually like a orange like color on top and yellow underneath. They turn blue/black real fast when touched.

I'm not a Bolete picker, but bottom line is... don't eat it. Not worth it. If your only ID method is determining whether 10 seconds is "slow enough" to turn Blue, then.....

No stinkin mushroom is good enough to risk how sick they may make you if unsure of ID. Now if that was a vat of something that taste like Lobster....

Lol, I'm not planning on eating anyhting I'm unsure of. That's why I asked. But the field guide I have, and online sources all say the same thing. The two boletes look exactly alike. The only way to tell them apart is how fast the turn blue. Immediately for one, and within 10 seconds for the other. The ones I have start slowly turing blue right after I touch them, but aren't dark blue until around 8 seconds. That's where the hang up is. When I get home, I'll post a video of mine turning colors.

...... not to mention. EVERY Bolete, even fresh, that I've cut the cap on, have little white larvae type bugs wiggling around. I'll pass.
