Boletus lychnipes superficially resembles B. auripes Peck in overall coloration, but the latter taxon has a conspicuously reticulate stipe over the upper half and doesn't stain brown or salmon pink on the stipe. The conspicuously sterile margin and prominent pseudocystidia are also characteristic for B. lychnipes. Currently only known from one very small site in the northern Cordillera Talamanca.
