could have a mycorrhizal fungi associated with it fruiting at least 150 feet away.

There are Ponderosa in the general vicinity. This particular specimen was in an open area, at least 30 ft from any tree.

I was just wondering if your observation was found in Ponderosa Pine forest? If so it might be a Suillus but it sure looks like reticulation on the stipe.

but I’d like to see more stipe before committing myself.

I did not collect this mushroom because harvesting is not allowed in this area.
Is this Boletus edulis?
