Not sure what I was thinking.

Mainly hemlock.

There are pines mixed throughout this area, but it’s mostly hemlock/birch along this particular stretch of trail.

This one matches my own subcaerulescens concept very well… edulis type with reddish brown cap. Many other I have observed have the slightly wrinkled cap surface like this one. Bluing on the pore surface. Stipe completely covered with thick “Jackson Pollock” reticulations.

Sometime soon this will be called something else… perhaps Semicyanoreticuloboletus subcaerluescens.

Walt, what is the reason…

for you’re questioning the subcaerulescens ID? This one appears to be a classic example.
