Observation 23943: Boletus edulis var. clavipes (Peck) Pilat & Dermek
When: 2009-08-03
No herbarium specimen

Notes: While foraging in a dense Norway Spruce plantation, we happened upon these. We have found these in similar habit before. We did find true B. edulis and realized these were different, noting the tapered stipe all the way up and reticulation throughout the stipe surface. When photos were posted, G. Lincoff suggested B. edulis var. clavipes and true enough, they key out.

Such large fruitings of boletes are rare in my part of the world.
