Observation 200038: Boletus pallidus Frost

When: 2014-09-18

Collection location: Mainville, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Phil Yeager (gunchky)

No specimen available

Terrestrial in mixed woods. Started photographing mushrooms upon entering the woods, and upon encountering many species I grew tired of bending/lying down to take photos. This was one of many that I threw in my basket to view later, and then forgot to take field notes. gets to be a habit when I find too many species in short period of time.

of Boletus pallidus? This type is not intensely bitter and the pores usually bruise slate-bluish. But especially with very young specimens, sometimes there’s no bruising.

Tylopilus looks like a possibility to me. But I don’t recognize this as any type of Tylopilus I’ve found around here. Maybe T. intermedius?
