Update on growing habitat.

I have just re-read my notes, and this fellow was attached to the base of a dead stump. Sorry I goofed, but that’s what happens when you get tired.

Boletellus dissiliens. The cap surface has that morphology and color. Stains intensely blue (quickly masking the true yellow color) in cap and upper stipe. Should be staining a orangish brown or brownish red in the stipe context if fresh enough. Need to see spores on this one.
