to Smith and Thiers work on Boletus chippewaensis and understand why this doesn’t fit— lack of red on the cap and red staining pores. The lesson I guess is to be more suspect of ID’s at club sponsored forays.

Please help me understand why you changed the name. I know it is in the B. edulis group but saw them on the table at NEMF under the B. chippewaenis name—thought this was the latest species name since it was used at NEMF.
