Who: Steve Nelsen (sfnelsen)

No specimen available

A two species segregate from Boletus? Give us a break.

The only reliable place I know of to find it in Wisconsin is Walking Iron. where we see it every year. Although common further south, it is pretty rare in the northern U.S., and Smith only recorded three places it had been found in Michigan in his 1971 monograph: Tahquamenon Falls S.P. on the shore of Lake Superior in the U.P., in Emmett County, which is just west of the bridge from lower Michigan to the U.P., and in Barry County, which is the next one north-east of Kalamazoo.

It often does not start till September, but this year we found it on the 27th of July, the earliest we ever saw it.
