Collection location: Worcester Co., Massachusetts, USA [Click for map]
Wine color between spores and main cap flesh. Spores stain blue (greenish blue?). Strong smell that fills up the room, slightly unpleasant, but like shiitake, so not unbearable. VERY large specimen left in the field (8in/20cm across) had a slightly concave cap. Most are bug eaten.
Flesh does not readily turn blue. Some slight color change, but not immediate.

I will see if there is another flush (maybe next year).
…what this bluing bolete actually is. Well-beyond their prime, the fruiting bodies have lost their original colors and are unrecognizable. One thing for sure, this mushroom cannot be B. calopus for that one sports a prominently reticulated stipe.
Please do not just change the proposed name. I have no idea why these would not be B. calopus, and just changing the name back to Boletus L. is not useful.
Very faint yellowish cap flesh turns white immediately. The yellow color can be seen by rubbing the flesh once, very hard.
