Observation 211561: Boletaceae Chevall.

When: 2015-07-24

Collection location: Mont Alto State Park, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Stipe is reticulate.

This mushroom may have fruited well over a week prior to its collection. So I’m wondering if it may be an example of Exsudoporus frostii (Boletus frostii) that has been bleached during the hot dry weather.

Can’t think of anything else — it doesn’t immediately evoke anything from my memory bank. :)
Your camera always takes very good pix, but I cannot get enough fine detail on the stipe ornamentation. At the same time, your fingerprints got captured in hi-res! I’ll add this photo to my KGB (I mean FSB) files. :)

I agree

with E. frostii, it has quite a lot of reticulation, also the white margin and shiny pileipellis.

Interesting idea, Igor.

Any other suggestions on the species? Most of the red-capped red-pored boletes with reticulate stipe are reported as having fine reticulations.

… would probably retain its impressive reticulation structure after partial desiccation. Maybe the slugs ate away at the ridges. :)
