Observation 166793: Boletales E.-J. Gilbert
When: 2014-06-04
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Small redish-brown with small projections on the pileus, yellow pores, and a reddish stipe logitudinally lined. Does not look reticulate. Trama, pores, and stipe context instantly stain bluish-green upon cutting. Found on moss covered drainage creek in predominatly Hemlock woods with some Yellow Birch the nearest tree. The best I could call this is Boletus speciosus var. brunneus, but I’d only be guessing because chemical tests 8 hours after picking were negative for KOH, NH4OH, and FeSO4. Also I could not obtain a spore print. Probably immature specimens. With any luck I may find some mature ones shortly.
