Observation 171279: Boletus subcaerulescens ( E.A. Dick & Snell) Both, Bessette & A.R. Bessette
When: 2014-07-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: KOH on cap orangish. Ammonia on cap… green flash quickly becoming orange in the middle and temporarily resolving as orange with a green halo, eventually becoming completely bright yellow-orange. This is pretty much a bulls-eye match with the BRB report for subcaerulescens.

Hemlock, birch, White Pine, rhododendron in a shady area by a small stream.

Stipe completely reticulate.
