Observation 103356: Boletus L.
When: 2012-07-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Obviously an older specimen.

Small amount of bluing when cut at base and apex of stem. A small amount in scattered locations directly above the pore surface. Also a very small amount on very top of context by the cuticle. Red flushing on stem bruising blue.

Thought I smelled a bit of curry in the woods, but not really once it got back. Maybe slightly or I need to re-smell a fresh specimen of B. sensibilis to retune the sniffer.

Pore surface dark blue, fading to brown. Finally entire pore surface fading to olive green.

KOH yellow on context, NH4 negative.

Near Boletus chrysenteron

in Arora, but who knows in Australia? Have you heard of Austroboletus? Might be similar to Boletus mendocinensis “with pinkish to reddish pores”, but not much else to go on. No pink or reddish tints within the cracks, so not, I think, B. chrysenteron. Nor do the gills look radial nor enlarged.
