Observation 25541: Boletaceae Chevall.
When: 2009-09-21
Who: bryan
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found three of these around base of recently dead conifer in mixed forest (mostly oak). Seemed to bruise slightly (quickly) blue and then fade. Yellow/ochre cap with scales. Rust orange pores. Reddish stipe, about ~5cm length.

Distinctly citrus smell.

B. hemichrysus?

Thanks. I was unsure only because I could not find any reference to a citrus smell for B. hemichrysus.

Looks like B. hemichrysus is indeed a very good match for your bolete. The description in B-R-B is dead on, yet you stopped short of giving it this name officially. Why? Someone will “steal your thunder”, but it won’t be me. :-)
