The names have been changing a lot in the last couple of years in the Boletaceae, and the family now consists of over 60 genera.
In the East we have a similar-looking bolete, B. projectellus, that has also been moved to Aureoboletus.
Yes, our porcini are still rocking, and hopefully I’ll be collecting some tomorrow. :-)
Happy hunting, Drew!

Thanks I.G!

Love finding these in the mid elevation areas of the cascades… Now that they have a new name, I’ll have to reintroduce myself this coming Fall!

Thanks again for the link too, good buddy :)

Hope your porcini haul is still a’rockin… Ours petered out about a week ago, sadly.

Take care man,

Spores truly!
