Blue bruising on B. pallidus…

is best seen by scratching the pore surface. The color change is slow and usually fairly faint, with a slate-gray tinge. On young specimens of pallidus, there may be no color change at all.

I cut it in two and the pores did not turn blue immediately like some other boletes I have seen.

Do the pores bruise?
