Observation 109217: Leccinum holopus (Rostk.) Watling
When: 2012-09-07
No herbarium specimen

Notes: At first I thought this was an example of L. albellum. But the bright blue staining of the stipe context does not fit this species.

I had considered holopus, but B/R/B did not mention the bluing of the stipe context. IMO, staining reactions can be variable for some species of Leccinum.
