Observation 180553: Boletus longicurvipes Snell and A.H. Smith
When: 2014-09-26
No herbarium specimen

Notes: 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.

Dave, At first, I thought I’d found something quite unusual, not having found anything that matched the caps of these specimens. Thanks again for your help, Mark
I see variability in cap color…

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.

Thanks Dave

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
