Observation 23490: Boletus pseudosulphureus Kallenb.
When: 2009-07-23
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: I have encountered many bolete type fungi lately and this is going to be my attempt to ID them. This was growing on an old abandon road that had not been used in many many years. Oak have already started to grow on the road and they are quite large. This was growing under Red Oak. The surface quickly stains blue upon even touching it. There where several in the area mostly looking very shabby. The caps are very yellow and not staining your hands yellow like some species of Boleteacea I have encountered. taste mild.
