At the time, this was my first declared hunt for mushrooms BlueCanoe, and I was absolutely unknowledgeable when identifying mushrooms, much less the subrate or trees around it. This mushroom was found underneath some bush, actually, and the bush was near a tree. I known that in the region, Madera Canyon, this is a confierous wood with ponderosa pine, white pine, and limber pine. The altitude was 5,500 feet. Hope any of this helps, I can only wish that my IDing and notetaking skills were as good as they are today, as I would learn later that Boletus pulchriceps is rare. Oh well, I feel there’ll be more!
