Observation 11432: Gyroporus castaneus (Bull.) Quél.
When: 2008-09-16
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found under pine (maybe white pine), and perhaps was attached to the duff. These are more of some unknown Boletale that I also found up in Saratoga Co., there they seemed to be under oak and mixed hardwood.

I tried to get a spore print, and couldn’t find one on these, even though I kept the cap damp and under cover for 2 days. There are no staining reactions, and taste was mild. Actually the taste was almost sweet, slightly sugary. The stipe was hollow, and very firm and brittle, the cap would break off easily.
