Notes: Hemlock stand.
No vinaceous stage to staining. Purple-gray to darker gray.
KOH: darkens on cap with dark perimeter, bright ornage on context.
Ammonia: negative on cap and context.
I think this qualifies as what BRB calls L. aurantiacum (a European species).

primarily in areas of pine and/or hemlock. Sometimes some oak in the vicinity. This collection was made in a creekside area highly dominated by hemlock.
this is a very interesting collection, particularly because of the habitat. As you know leccinums are mycorrhizal “specialists”, with exception of the European L. aurantiacum. I am sure M. Kuo would be interested in this one. Are there any scaber stalks known to grow with hemlock? Any chance you missed a deciduous tree in the stand? :-)
