Observation 145901: Boletus subalpinus (Trappe & Thiers) M. Nuhn, Manfr. Binder, A.F.S. Taylor, Halling, & Hibbett
When: 2013-09-18
No herbarium specimen

Notes: White stipe, contorted gills. This is, I believe, the underground equivalent to Boletus edulis.


White stipe, brown and white pores, often barely erumpent as this was.
Cap does look similar to Boletus edulis.
Pores distorted or even loculate.
Pores with insect mycophagy. Is this the primary means of dispersal?
