Collection location: Neihart, Montana, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

I don’ think these qualify as rubriceps, not red enough, and probably too far north for this species.

An unusually wet summer in Montana in 2009. I was trying to find one of very few first-year burn sites when suddenly these were all around the pine/spruce woods. I could have picked 100 pounds in a day or two. Spent most of my time looking for the elusive burn-site, which ended up having no morels. What was I gonna do with a 100 pounds of boletes and no available dehydration method? Picked about 10-12 pounds, gave some away and ate all the rest. Perhaps the highest quality I have ever eaten.
