by IF may be Leccinum, but this is not a Leccinum. It is closely related to Xerocomus and belongs in Hemileccinum. That is, if you feel that the split from Xerocomus is warranted.

Since that’s what’s currently approved. I leave it to those who have experience with the taxon and the fine points of the Boletaceae to decide which name we should be using.

Hey Thanks!

Great thanks! that helps here…

Now there was another unknown Leccinum-type thing I saw on Long Island, which is almost out your way, if you could take a look at obs. 11411 and tell me what you think it might be? Maybe?

(It is called rex-veris right now, something very very bad has happened and all boletes are coming up as rex-veris… that needs to get fixed somehow…)

I should probably be calling it Leccinum (but I’m not, yet…) I think Index Fungorum has both as acceptable.
subglabripes has a yellow stipe with yellow scales/scabers which sometimes stain pinkish, Ob 11063 is a good subglabripes.
rubropunctus has pinkish-red scales/scabers, otherwise they look very similar. 11410 is rubropunctus, I see it along with longicurvipes misidentified as subglabripes all the time.

How is it different than Leccinum subglabripes?

Is this a Boletus or a Leccinum? How is this different than Leccinum subglabripes? (or Boletus subglabripes?) What are the character here to make this one stand out? The stipe kinda makes it look like a Leccinum.

Can you take a look at obs. 11410? Is this one the same…
