Observation 71473: Boletus L.
When: 2011-07-04
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This was an interesting bolete. It’s cap was bright red. it’s stem and flesh were lemon yellow but quickly bruised a brilliant blue. I think i saw it in a book referred to as an Old Rose Bolete, but can’t remember the Latin name.

but…this looks like something close to the Boletus subluridellus/discolor cluster.
