Some boletes air dry just fine without getting moldy. It’s always worth a shot rather than just tossing stuff away. There is always next time, right? :)

No, I was away for a few days and had no way to preserve it

I kept it for a couple of hours until I could do chemical tests and I noticed that the pore surface seemed darken a bit—more cream that white—and take on a pinkish tinge.


Interesting little bolete

I don’t immediately recognize this one and cannot associate it with anything in my memory bank. Did you save the specimen, Terri?
