dried specimen. It looks like B. ornatipes. I am glad to tell you where it was – contact me when you get in town. Of course, I am rooting for B. auriflammeus. I have not looked at the spores.

I would love to see this bolete… I’ll be in DC next week… maybe it will still be around.

I think B. auriflammeus a better fit.

In Smith, Smith & Weber, B. auriflammeus has a “… stipe up to 8 cm long, 1.5 cm thick, subequal, pinched at base and with strong white mycelial plates and cord, chrome yellow, pulverulent, strongly reticulated at least above…” Key to this species seems to be the wide pore tubes “1-2 mm wide, deep chrome yellow then bright crimson over all or in splotches…” This obs. have very wide tube openings that may fit in that observation.

Also other B. ornatipes obs. at MO do not have this appearance.
