spore print? dried specimen for the mycologists so they can make correct id?

we need to pay heed .
mushrooms wrongly diagnosed and eaten leads to poisoning and death
do some googling for epidemiology of mushroom poisioning. 

Any idea about the family or genus ?

It’s Family Boletaceae member..

Thanks, … I request … to go through comparative images in efi site at Order Boletales

Looks like.

Can we get to the family with these images ?

Suillus is probable.
Please note, when you find a bolete, make a longitudinal cross-section to see if there is blue/red bruising and what type it is, get a close up of the stipe to see if it has reticulations, dots or some other structures.

This one looks Suillus based on the elongated pores.
Suillus usually has a slimy pileus but your specimen seems old that’s why that character is missing.
