yuh, but with these, we like to grasp at straws!

there are a bewilderment of Leccinum sp. up there, at least a dozen, and the one key that I have seen is only so useful.

I collected and dried everything we found, but so far the Post Office hasn’t managed to get it to me! If and when it finally arrives, Bruns will be doing the DNA work on these.I wrote up all staining, etc. characters plus photos for each sp. Perhaps AK Leccinum clarity is in our future?!

Still how cool to have billions of these beautiful and diverse Leccinum in the field, eh? Our slender stiped not-the-porcini.

Likely birch, since this area was dominated by that tree.
Staining pinkish at first I think, but I didn’t collect this one. As far as I understand, the European studies showed that staining was only useful for general groups (ie. blue-green vs. Pinkish to gray). But I am no Leccinum expert. Could be L. versipelle or something else entirely.

staining?
