Possible bolete

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Found in a mainly oak and birch woodland, I'm thinking red cracked bolete but every picture I find has the stem entirely red, can anyone give me a clarification? Is staining bluey green

Boletes need a photo with it cut lengthways to show the discolouration pattern.

Xerocomellus cisalpinus would fit the bill?
