Observation 209882: Leccinum subglabripes (Peck) Singer

When: 2015-07-13

Collection location: Oxford, North Carolina, USA [Click for map]

Who: Jennifer (jabdo)

No specimen available

It doesn’t seem to stain blue when bruised, but the yellow pores seem blue tinged. The cap was about 4 inches across and stem no more than an inch or inch and a half. I was thinking B. projectellus (Roody) or B. subtomentosus (Miller) but I think these stain.

Thank you for your help. I pressed it with my finger and it didn’t seem to stain, but maybe in the older specimens this happens – it turns all blue as it ages. I hadn’t seen enough in various stages to understand that. One day! Thank you again for the comments!

Not Boletus projectellus

(now Aureoboletus p.) because there is no pink-cast to the stipe. The stipe sort of looks like it has gladular dots on it, which would make this Suillus. The gills do stain blueish (1st photo) and the cap also stains blueish (2nd photo, near the edge of the pileus).

A lot of the Boletaceae have recently undergone revision, and I am uncertain of the current status of these.
