that is significantly reticulate.

Some types of bolete have stipe that is reticulate on the upper portion and punctate on the lower portion. But I agree this would be unusual for a leccinum.

If Leccinum, wouldn’t there more be scabers than reticulation? (or is it I’m wrong and this isn’t a reticulated upper stipe?). Alternatively, the patterns on the stipe aren’t reticulation and the dots aren’t debris/dirt (though I’m inclined toward debris/dirt since similar spots appear to be on the pore surface). But I may be wrong. Comments most welcome to help me understand this better.

Also, please see ammonia photo just uploaded.
