This bolete is not one I’m familar with.

A beautiful mushroom that has a combination of visual characters that I’ve never seen. Too bad there werem’t additional specimens. The stipe looks like it has a red punctate covering over a yellow ground color. That can be seen in the upper third and it reminds me of a young Boletus morrissii, but that mushroom doesn’t stain blue/green and the cap color is darker. In fact the cap color may be deceiving because it MAY have been washed out or sun-bleached, something that often happens with boletes, so we may not know the true cap color. I don’t know the mushroom B. rhodosanguineus except from pictures. Wish I could be of more help but this one’s a stumper…

is the bright green staining. I haven’t seen that before. Blue, yes.

Maybe I’m wrong (not the first time!)

The cap color can be pale. But that stipe! Check it out here as I know it.

At least not as I understand that species. The cap color is much too pale and the stipe is too red all over. It is a gorgeous bolete whatever it is.

no need to be angry
Everyone has their opinion…

Without a complete ID

Well, here’s my opinion: it’s better with a genus name than to lump it together with thousands of other “Fungi”, and when in doubt, it’s better with several suggestions than none.
Even if it’s obvious (?) to anyone, it’s easier for everyone with special interests to look through the obses of a particular genus.

Thank you

… very much any help is welcome
I started this year with no idea about mushrooms
when I put the picture I hope for some specific name for mushrooms
I understand that it is difficult to identify mushrooms over image…
I am still surprised when someone put russula under photo of rusulla instead of adding the proper name …

Great Pic Eva

I found a very similar Bolete in West Virginia that was ID as B rhodosanguineus or B. vermiclosus. Nobody could come up with a consensus.But i would purpose the latter for a name. I think we live close to each other at least i see a lot of Ontario license plates on our road ways here. Eva both of us live in places where the mycological flora is vast. I have found a lot of fungi mostly boletes and Amainta that have not been Identified. So its quite possible that this is one that has not been described. Im going to get some others to chime in on this that have extensive bolete knowledge.

Boletus sp.

but I’m not sure which one. Could be Boletus rhodosanguineus but yours lacks red tones in the cap, so…
