Observation 115301: Leccinum griseonigrum A.H. Sm., Thiers & Watling
When: 2012-11-01
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I almost stepped on this, thinking it was a hole in the ground. Very dark purple-brown with dark reddish areas on the cap. STIPE: 4 inches tall; enlarging from cap toward ground level, then suddenly taping to just below ground level; scabers black to reddish-black; some reddish staining near ground level. Identification based on association with birch plus very dark cap color.
