and the consistently white context were helpful at arriving at the ID.

Yeah, I’m glad I finally remembered to pick up some ammonia at the grocery store :-)

Did you see the B. huronensis I found in Maine? A couple days after the NEMF foray. obs 174643

Good call, Dave

This one doesn’t have ridges on the upper stipe, making it a less obvious ID. Aren’t you glad ammonia was handy? At the same time, the list of boring, nondescript boletes is fairly short and B./X. subtomentosus is usually at the very top together with some brown Tylopili. :)
