Observation 146468: Leccinum holopus var. americanum A.H. Sm. & Thiers
When: 2013-09-23
No herbarium specimen

Notes: White, smooth cap with whitish pores depressed at stipe apex. Pores bruising yellowish. Flesh white, slowly turning pinkish when cut. Stipe, white with black squamules, when dissected longitudinally the upper 1/3 of the stipe turns pinkish while the lower2/3 turns greenish-blue in some areas. Riparian habitat, with mixed woods. According to my reasearch this species differs from L. halopus because the flesh clearly stains pinkish.
