Observation 209597: Gastroboletus turbinatus (Snell) A.H. Smith & Singer

Specimen brought to Henry Young, neither him nor I found it

Smells similar to a Bolete. Stained intensely blue immediately after being cut in half. Pore layer very deformed.

Found in upper Fall Creek. Exact location unknown. Habitat in this area is predominately Tan Oak, Madrone and Redwood, with pockets of Doug Fir. Live Oak and Pine are virtually non-existent. Soil can be rocky in patches. Area was mined for limestone in the 19th century.

This area has produced numerous oddities and first county records. An interesting find for July! Should be noted the weather has been quite “tropical” so far this summer with the occasional isolated storm.
