The only reasons…

why I did not originally propose bicolor with ultimate confidence are: 1. presence of a red/yellow bolete with black bruising on the cap, found in the same location, 2. lack of red especially, on the cap.

IMO, the lack of red is not a problem, as faded bicolor specimens are common, and this location is an open wood border that gets plenty of sun.

As for the black bruising, I don’t see it on this specimen. Actually, I’m beginning to believe that the black bruising type is just bicolor under some specific condition, probably excessive rainfall. obs 207503

Can the tubes be any thinner for this to be bicolor?

What is your reason for doubting this observation represents bicolor?

Whenever I provide a highly negative vote for a proposal, I try to provide at least on reason for doing so.
