Boletus roodyi, obs 244412, but with added bluing and reticulation. B. roodyi is likely to wind up in a new genus. Similarly, the generic affinities of this collection are yet to be determined. It would be nice to record a thorough description of this entity at the next available opportunity.

I see a good few of these that I always presumed were “Boletus” bicolor for years.

This indeed appears to be the same mushroom that Dazio Z. often finds in VA. I reckon it could be a taxon related to Butyriboletus roseopurpureus. I believe I have Dario’s collection of this entity, but I don’t think it was submitted for sequencing yet.

the Mushroom Expert depiction of B. pseudosensibilis (now or soon-to-be in genus Lanmaoa).

There seems to be different opinions regarding whether pseudosensibilis is a predominantly reddish-brown or truly red capped type. Also, the rapidity of blue staining for pseudosensibils is reported quite differently among available sources.

beef bouillon!

I am sorry to say I did NOT know to check that characteristic! :)

NEXT TIME THOUGH ! I’m not letting that slide by.
My only reservation is that I did not see much red or pink on the stipe.

Otherwise that seems a good fit.
Thank you, sir!

One of the key traits for pallidoroseus…

is that it almost always smells like beef bullion. Bruising of context tends to be slow with this species.

As in the second picture, a rather slow and grey “staining” rather than green or blue. I wasn’t even sure if I could call that staining!

staining quick or slow? what color?

B. pallidoroseus, but that’s about as much as I can add…
