Notes: This one confused me for a bit, the pores are red. This tends to me a serious taxonomic feature for Boletes, so it was a concern. But I was told sometimes this happens in B. chrysenteron if it freezes at some point in dev. Which must have happened here, everything else looks like a B. chrysenteron, but the pores are red.
So, something to look out for perhaps, sometimes the pores can be red.
Okey-dokey – I’ll give B. mendocinensis a try here… I’ll have to see if I find more of these in the future.
