Regarding separans…

Kuo says “To be certain of your identification, place a drop of common household ammonia on the liver-flushed areas of the stem of Boletus separans: the result is a color change to deep blue-green.” I did that and got a VERY faint blue-green reaction.
Also, Kuo says B. separans has a red cap and white pore surface when young, and brown cap and yellow pore surface when mature. This one has brown cap and white pore surface.
