Comments: Texture and color of the upper surface of the hut, rooting stipe, turning blue on bruising and very strong bitter taste are typical traits of Boletus radicans. What surprises in this find is reddish coloration of damaged places (by snails) and quite distinctive reddish tones of the stipe. This is unusual with Boletus radicans and causes some doubts in our determination. However, no better alternatives have been found.
Growing solitary; pileus diameter 8.5 cm; quickly bruising blue-green when handled; SP faint, color indistinguishable.
