Someone suggested B. brunneus for another very similar mushroom I collected at the same site and same day. Although I said that the stipe didn’t bruise blue, I should note that we did see some blue tinges on the stipe, but I couldn’t reliably reproduce these, and so thought that they must have come from the cap or something. Everything about the B. brunneus description fits this mushroom, in my opinion.

mainly bitter species. Boletus pallidoroseus is listed as non-bitter.

I doubt C. roseipes or inedulis
