Observation 187389: Buchwaldoboletus Pilát
When: 2005-08-14
(50.53° 80.21° 450m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Boletus ornatipes Boletaceae, Agaricales.

Cap: 3-6cm (probably bigger when old), convex (almost ball-shaped when young); smooth; orange-yellow or yellow, margin curved in.
Flesh is light yellow and light gray after boiling.
Tubes: attached light yellow when young.
Stalk: 4-8cm long and 2-4cm thick, light yellow, after bruising very weak pink and greenish-blue coloring; young stalk has classic King Bolete shape, but the ending looks as a root!
Habitat: very rare kind in pine-tree forest, it was only found at the base of pine-tree stump in intergrowth with rotten wood. Next year I did not find this kind at all in the same place.
Comment: I found Boletus ornatipes and Tulopilus ballouii in other locations from time to time in mixed forest (fir tree and birches). It is my only occasion in pine-tree forest during last 50 years. Other similar kinds with yellow flesh have fine velvety cap surface when young.
Edibility: after boiling it was tasty as a King Bolete.
July (?) – August
