I found this over two years ago and don’t remember tasting it. I still have permission to pick in this site and will scope it out again this year. I also believe that I haave found B. pallidus in our area before, but was never certain of my ids.

Phil, here’s another thing…

to separate B. pallidus from a pale Tylopilus. B. pallidus is not bitter-tasting, like many of the Tylopilus species.

The gray-blue bruising on the pores of B. pallidus is not always evident. On young specimens the pores may bruise slightly tannish, or not at all.

B. pallidus is a common species in our hardwood forests. Seems to associate with a variety of trees.

Thanks Noah.

Your comments should help me to id this species if I find another one.
