Observation 23491: Boletus longicurvipes Snell and A.H. Smith
When: 2009-07-23
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Found Under Oak and Hickory. There where several of them growing under a large stand of Oak. The caps stain very slowly a dark blue almost black over an hour. The spore print is a light yellow brown. Apparently the name Leccinum subglabripes common name given to a lot of members of the Family Boleteacea. This is the best i can come up with.

Well The two bottom pics where growing very close to the ones shown in the upper pics so i assumed they where the same but different in age. The older one full of maggots. They seem to have similar stems. I have a lot of Boletacea pics but the field guides appear to be useless in trying to id any of them. so im giving it my best shot more pics to come.

Noah is correct.
