I can can go with scabers. It’s not really netted. I’ll see if i get a spore print. Thanks!

I think the stipe surface…

may better be described as “with scabers”, which would support the Leccinum proposal. Most Leccinum mushrooms show raised, darkened dots on the stipe. These are called “scabers.” Another possible description would be “scaly.” But a truly netted (reticulate) stipe shows a patterned netting in a threadlike overlay.

The thing that has me wondering about this mushroom is the large pore openings. This feature reminds me of a few of the Tylopilus species. If you obtain a spore print, then an olive tint points toward Leccinum, and a reddish or pinkish tint points toward Tylopilus.

of the cut mushroom? Specifically, what color changes were noted in the cut cap, stipe, and/or tubes?
