The brown-bruising non-bitter types…

that I commonly find here in PA (T. badiceps and T. ferrugineus) are darker brown than this. One other name to consider may be T. tabacinus. I don’t know this type first hand… it’s in the big bolete book.

I brought it home. It’s not bitter.

Herb, did you taste this?

There are a couple bitter Tylos that bruise brown on the pores. T. indecisus, which looks like a good fit here, is reported as non-bitter.

I think you’re right Eric. I did noticed it didn’t have the reticulations. Thank you.

Hi Erl

The lack of any reticulation on the stem makes me think this is something other than Tylopilus felleus. Maybe something closer to Tylopilus indecisus?
