Collection location: Shickshinny, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]
Yellowish to redish-brown caps with white pores,and short, thick, well reticulated stipe. Found in grass under White Pine. No bitter taste. Actually it tasted a bit nutty. and chewy. Pileipellis stained slightly with KOH and NH4OH, but The pileipellis and context didn’t stain pale grayish green after about 2 hours with Fe2SO4. Was hoping this might be B.edulis, but not certain. Excelent when fried in butter.

the reticulations on the stipe are quite observable. Together with the non-staining good-tasting flesh, the shape, cap color, and late occurrance, I think “edulis group” is as good as it gets for a name for these… for the time being. Maybe someday someone will untangle this eastern NA edulis mess.
About 10 days ago I made an edulis collection under Blue Spruce in Mossville, a stone’s throw away from Shickshinny.
These late-season Porcini are about the best edible mushrooms you can find around here. They come out after the insects have all cleared out. The flesh is firm and pure white. If we had been a bit luckier with more rainfall, I think this fall would have produced a real bumper crop. There have been a few times when I hauled home well over 10 pounds of October edulis.
These Boletes are thouroughly confusing. My wife and I ate this mushroom and she said it was her new favorite. How about that? She has a favorite mushroom, and we don’t its name.
there is more than one type of edulis that occurs locally, some of which are probably native and others imported. The White Pine type is one of the latest-occurring varieties that I find.
