When: 2015-10-09

Collection location: Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA [Click for map]

Who: Logan Wiedenfeld (LoganW)

No specimen available

Found under oak in suburban lawn. Blues quickly everywhere when bisected, fades to dingy green-brown.

I believe that I have mistaken whatever this is for B. subluridus in the past.

B. subluridus doesn’t have reticulation on stipe, so your bolete cannot be that at least for this reason. There are a number of mostly all-red boletes with reticulate stipes, e.g., B. carminiporus, B. flammans, B. rhodosanguineus, and B. rubroflammeus, so you might want to consider these for starters…
