Observation 104260: Boletus edulis group
When: 2012-08-05
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

I use “B. edulis group” in the sense of Michael Kuo (http://www.mushroomexpert.com/boletus_edulis.html#key). The group includes species like X. separans and B. variipes. This might be B. variipes, but the chemical tests reported in B-R-B are not consisten with it. In these specimens, neither KOH nor ammonia produced a noticable color change when applied to the context, which is contradiction to the test results in the book.

The two fruitbodies were found in different sections of the woods at the above location. They are very similar in appearance, but the reticulation pattern is different in mesh size and color (see picture 011.jpg for details). I think both are the same species.
