Difficult to identify but

Difficult to identify but possibly Boletus.
I've come across similar white mould on Boletus badius and it is possibly Hypomyces chrysosperms

The more I know the more I realise I don't know

I doubt that the bolete is identifiable, but I agree the parasitic mould is Hypomyces chrysospermus. It occurs on many boletes, including Paxillus and Scleroderma (earthballs), which are now confirmed by their DNA as boletes.
