reaction for P. boletinoides is violet purple with an ochre orange circle around it. For P. luecomycelinus, it’s a blue green – even the fumes will cause the reaction. The reaction also works on dried material. A recent paper was published in Mycologia 102: 923-943. 2010 by M.-A. Neves and R.E. Halling on neotropical and N. American species at PDF. It includes an identification key.
