Hi Martin

I’ve been looking for these. Guess we don’t have the right habitat here but I’ll be in the southern part of the state next week and there’s a lot of oak so maybe I’ll hit it lucky. We’re finding a ton of L. subglabripes now in great condition. I haven’t eaten them but am tempted as there are so many. From what I’ve read the edibility of Leccinum is suspect perhaps.


Thanks Terri
