Observation 202593: Boletus L.
When: 2015-04-09
0 Sequences

Possibly “One for Royh?” Fungi found in wet semi rainforest soil bank. Fungi near Eucalyptus tree roots. First thoughts were the cap was stained by the local soil colour, but now I do not think so. The fungi was well embedded in the bank and not really visible till area cleared around the specimen. Stipe Red !!! thick,short and robust and with uneven surface. Noted that there was some of the veil still attached to the stipe near the top of the pelius and stipe, which may have been caused by the surrounding soil holding the veil in this state. Not sure what I have here?? Some light bruising and some colour change when pileus bisected. Spore print was not able to be collected. Specimen saved for drying.

nothing coming from europe is comparable to this. this is very interesting. next time try to do a vertical cut of the entire mushroom if possible

Boletus sp. Unable to submit as this ID. (Boletus sp). Used suggested MO Boletus L.

one for me that I have not seen before, Ian. At first I thought there was some kind of veil material because of the weft-like tissue seen on the stipe, but I am not sure because that tissue appears to be covering the stipe apex as well. I’m not saying there isn’t one, though. Also, while the mushroom appears in good shape, I’m thinking it had some developmental issues while emerging – the obvious ‘sterile’ zone between the margin of the cap and the tubes. Given what I’m seeing so far, I’m comfortable with a Boletus sp. in the broad sense until more data is at hand. Thanks.
