I sometimes tweak the color of a photo before uploading to make the mushrooms appear more vibrant, or to compensate for poor lighting conditions when the shot was taken. My goal is to present the mushroom as it would actually look if you had it in your hand, or maybe just a bit cooler ;)
These are specimen photos, so I take care not to change important identifying characters. Sometimes the sunlight will make things look more orange than they are, and I have noticed a distinct blue color coming from my hand crank diode light. However, the photos in this observation were taken in the shade, with no artificial light sources. I do not remember if I tweaked this photo, but if I did, then it would have been to enhance, not to reduce the color. If there was yellow in this mushroom, you would certainly be able to see it in the photo.
call it either longicurvipes or viscidocorrugis
I have to wonder about the color fidelity of these pics? If the pore surface was yellow rather than white I’d have no trouble calling this Boletus rubropunctus. Otherwise I’d call it Austroboletus gracilis but the slick, wrinkled cap is a bit atypical for that species. Tough one to ID by pic.
