The collection site is heavily hunted each weekend, and signs of boletevore activity were evident (see Arora, “Mushrooms Demystified”). So it was quite a surprise to find these perfect “whites”, some fairly large.
The explanation seemingly must be weather-related. But no rain for over a week now…? I think it was the fluctuating temperatures that set this off. Last rainfall (over a week ago) was followed by cool temps, high 40sF in the Poconos. Then a warmup. These conditions mimic mid-autumn conditions when these “split-season” boletes typically (re)appear.
