Under silver birch trees - in Chch. They looked close to me - but not sure about the reticulum on the stems and the stems look a bit blotchy.

 

I'm now almost certain this is what they are: http://www.trufflesandmushrooms.co.nz/Leccinum%20scabrum%20web.pdf

 

Edible - but I'll give them a miss.

Yes the stems definitely looked wrong for Boletus edulis, but the host and other characters match Leccinum scabrum as you found. Probably not tasty enough to give it a shot though.
