in a kind way, Debbie, where you live, if you have seen Porphyrellus (Tylopilus) porphyrosporus (aka, T. pseudoscaber) in coastal California, you will recognize some of the key features ascribed to Porphyrellus. Thanks.

another day, another bolete genera!

I am not complaining; I love my MO virtual classroom!

and thank you both Ian (for your many field labors) and Roy (for your insights and knowledge and willingness to share) for making it so.
