Observation 68166: Imleria badia (Fr.) Vizzini

When: 2011-05-26

Collection location: Wharton State Forest, Burlington Co., New Jersey, USA [Click for map]

Who: I. G. Safonov (IGSafonov)

No specimen available

An unusual fruiting of B. badius in the Pine Barrens in May!!! I typically find this bolete in October, but not in summer months, under pine. The current climatic conditions (i.e., soil temps, moisture, and perhaps availability of carbohydrates from the mycorrhizal association with pitch pines), are similar to those of the fall season. See my other two observations for other bolete species I found today at Brendan T. Byrne State Forest.

Im going to be on the lookout since I was expecting to not see my first Bolete for at least 3 weeks if not longer.
