No, the adult specimen will develop a redish stem and the margins of the cap will turn upside, cracking the pores of the lower side to the upside. I first thought it may be a Bronce or Bay Bolete - but the slight furry texture of the cap was missing. I just read that both species are often confused in juvenile state.
