Observation 162915: Boletellus deceptivus Hallling & Fechner
When: 2014-04-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: There were lots of these shaggy boletes growing near the top of Minyon Falls, where it is a wet sclerophyll forest. I couldn’t identify this purple species though it is similar (except the colour) to Boletellus ananaeceps.
