Who: Roy Halling (royh)
Corner described and illustrated this bolete. Cap has flattened felty patches that may or may not develop into squamules (erect, suberect or flattened). This are pale colored with a hint of pink (pinkish buff). The pileus flesh is yellow and quickly blue. This contrasts with a whitish stipe that stains brownish pink (rufescent) or a dirty orange on the surface AND in the flesh. This is completely different from B. emodensis (Old World) and B. ananas (New World).

Thanks J.H for noting the link . . . and Clive, so far, I’m inclined that B. ananas is strictly a New World species. That could change, however, with more exploration and further refinement of concepts.
Have you coincided Boletellus ananas
