Observation 116901: Boletus zelleri Murrill
When: 2012-11-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Associated with old-growth Douglas-fir near top of park. Mt. Tabor is near my home. It also has the dubious distinction of being the only dormant volcano within a major metropolitan area. Last erupted about 12,000 years ago. It will erupt again, like Mt. St. Helens to the north-northeast.


Cap barely areolate.
Some Hypomyces chrysenteron already growing from the base. An occupational hazard in this area.
Pores are yellow to slightly greenish.
Cap freshly sliced shows white flesh that stains reddish near the edge.
Some red near the base of younger caps.

The largest was nearly 7 inches across: larger than the typical B. zelleri in my experience. The smallest was 3 inches wide; others 4 and 5 inches wide.
