Observation 207299: Leccinum piceinum Pilát & Dermek

When: 2015-06-21

Collection location: Allegany State Park, Salamanca, New York, USA [Click for map]

Who: Garrett Taylor (cappy)

No specimen available

So this is nearly the same as my observation from 6/5/15, however I found this with Populus grandidentata being the closest tree. There were other trees there, I am fairly confident that there were no Birch in the immediate vicinity though. No conifers. So why did the pileipellis stain the same way as the one from the Norway Spruce forest. No idea!
