Based on color and form, this looks like Boletopsis grisea, but the habitat fits B. leucomelaena. This is like the reverse of the situation reported by Watling & Milne – they found a new species (based on molecular characters) in Scotland that looked like B. leucomelaena but had the habitat (pine) of B. grisea.
