Notes: All growing within the same 30 meter stretch of trail. Trail with wet areas, cranberries, and bordered by thicket of small gray birch.
Stain on cut context seen in second photo was more pink than as seen in the photo. Stain only occurring in upper half of mushroom; this portion also appears to be holding more moisture. Collected about 6 hours after a morning low temperature that was probably in the 20Fs.
No green tinge observed on these caps. But a few other Leccinum collected in the same area, quite a bit older, had darker tannish caps with prominent green stain across the cap surfaces.
KOH on caps negative to slightly pinkish. KOH very little reaction on young tight pores, purplish on older pores.
