Observation 141833: Boletus L.
When: 2013-08-04
No herbarium specimen

Notes: A group of closely spaced and scattered basidiocarps (about 10) growing under oaks. These were found next to the boletus in Obs. #141832, but appear to be a different species, which is visible from the pics. Something from the subvelutipes/discolor group???

This appears to be the same species as that of Obs. 105158, though I don’t recall if the latter was found at exactly the same spot.

It’s very convenient to label this type of a mushroom B. subvelutipes. Indeed some of them could be it, given the great variability of morphological feature is this species and the fact that its very commonplace. As far as this on is concerned, I couldn’t find red hairs at the stipe base — there was too much earth and debris there.

Ha! my favorite!
