Christian….another idea

If you think its not a bolete, I think this may fit better. Megacolybia platyphyla (maybe its rodmanii or something close now) also come contorted. John Plischke first turned my attention to this. Ill try and find some good photos he has of them, I have one myself.. see if I can dig it up. Also the stalk looks closer to that idea too.

wow, I just realized that… jeez.
Damon – I thought it was a bolete too, but the cross section made me think otherwise. We’ll have to wait for the DNA from that whatman card, I guess.

May be a long

shot.. Is this a bolete?.. If so, Michael Kuo taught me to look out for this. Xanthoconium purpureum (which has been infrequently reported on the West Coast) becomes contorted like this. I see it about 20 times a year like this in NY.
