Collection location: Big Thicket, Polk Co., Texas, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These looked like they belonged in the B. campestris or B. fraternus groups but there wasn’t any real bluing of either the pores or flesh. Also the olive brown spores were a little small, ~10.0 X 4.5 microns. These were fairly small, with caps under 3.5 cm across and stems up to 4.8 cm high.

The color of the pilepellis (glabrous) and the stipe (scruffy yellow with reddish tinges on the lower half) almost make it look like B. subglabripes, but the texture of the fertile surface (large angular pores) obviously eliminate this possibility. Thus, I would rather place this one in the Xerocomus group. Still trying to find a match in B-R-B…
