Hmmm… I guess I just assumed…

that a species listed within the comments under Boletus speciosus would need to have a reticulate stipe, as this agrees with my concept of the speciosus types.

in BB&R is a possibility. I did not scratch the pore surface to check for a color change.

I agree Dave

But if this is B. rubissimus in the link below, the cap color id wrong. I can’t see the reticulations.

Very little bluing for a speciosus type.

Big NA bolete book mentions the non-staining B. rubissimus within the comments under B. speciosus… only reported from Michigan. The brief description seems to match this collection.

Thanks Walt.

It was near the Amanita pantherina which I did collect.

Nice find Walt,
