Comments: This very beautiful mushroom was growing solitary; pileus diameter 9 cm; SP faint, brown, oac839. No typical red cracks on pileus surface observed. This species is considered very variable. Red stipe and cracked pileus surface with red context seen in the cracks seem to be two most distinctive traits of this bolete, however, they may also be totally absent.
