Observation 18167: Boletus variipes Peck
When: 2008-08-04
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Just for good measure, here’s another eastern edulis type that comes in a variety of cap colors. These young specimens do not show any of the cracks that sometimes occur on the cap of this species. The stalks within this collection were about 3/4 reticulate, but not extremely coarsely so. These stalks were almost completely white. Note the resemblance to the yellowish specimen of B. pinophilus (possibly) that I had recently posted… and, the resemblance to #18114 recently posted by John Plischke (which I tentatively IDed as B. pinophilus). My main reason for going with the B. variipes ID here, is that these were found in an oak woods (a few hemlock trees). B. nobilis is another good possibility for this one.
