This was the youngest specimen of about 2 dosen growing gregareously in a clearing surrounded by pure pine stands. The older mushrooms retained the original buff color of the cap and stipe, but the pore surface attained the characteristic pink-brown hue (photos Nos. 4-6); note the angular pores.

This looks like a pure white

bolete that I found about a month ago. I had figured it was likely an albino Xanthoconium serarans, as it was found growing in a spot where lots of separans grows…. obs 24524 in link below.
