Collection location: Pandapas Pond, Jefferson National Forest, Blacksburg, Virginia, USA [Click for map]
A Bolete of some kind with an unfamiliar pilleus pattern and dark, burnt orange-red color on a yellow base, apparently becoming less red as the cap grows in size with more brownish-dark red patterning color on a more visible yellow base. Found near conifer and oak/hickory type trees. Small in size with these two specimens standing 3-4 inches tall. Please see second photo for a better comparison of the caps and in focus look at the stipes.

with my collections of B. longicurvipes.
The ones with deeply pitted cap surface used to be called B. viscidocorrugis… I think this name may have also been applied to the darker-capped ones. Also called Leccinum longicurvipes.
Have you seen caps of B. longicurvipes similar to my specimens ? They are different from my few previous specimens, normally a more solid orangish shade. Is this what some look like when they are just emerging ? Thanks, Mark
