Observation 106340: Boletaceae Chevall.

Yellow cap, pores, and stipe, all parts instantly staining dark blue on contact. Firmly connected to white sand dune, often growing in direct contact with dune grass. Yellow reticulation on yellow stipe, slightly decurrent pores at apex. Cap seems to darken with pale reddish brown overlay to dark reddish brown to dark black brown, though some of these may be other species. Taste mild, odor not distinct.

It has a tiny habitat, but it is frequently present under the pines, on the sand dunes over several months

In late August 2014

It was seen 5 times in one weekend. In contrast to this observation, 2014 specimens were under two needle pine, although not necessarily in the most shaded spot.

description doesn’t mention a reticulate stipe, so I’m thinking maybe not B. pseudosulphureus.

Thanks Walt and Igor!
