Observation 175382: Boletus pallidus Frost
When: 2014-08-22
No herbarium specimen

Notes: A small community of this species found in soil beneath a Pin oak tree. Almost all of them had the same peeling of the stalk. Is that a characteristic of this species or something else? They all seemed quite fresh. Have a second specimen from the same group which shows more reticulation on the stalk.

This additional information added 1/6/17: In light of the research done on observation #244148 (see that) the species name is being changed on this observation. My observation was made at the exact same place and under the exact same tree, but earlier in 2014. Observations 209237, 253128, 208567, 208130 and 208129 also from the exact same place. All of these observations noted have been changed to Boletus pallidus.
