Under linden trees

We have Boletus barrowsii under oaks (Quercus garryana)at several sites on southern Vancouver Island. It was first picked and eaten by our Czech friend, who was in Victoria for his sabbatical. That was in 1970, about six years before it was formally described. It appears rarely, only when we have a rainy spring.

This particular site is at a watered street boulevard under linden (Tilia sp.) trees. We don’t eat it from this site, since the lawn there is treated with fertilizers and herbicides. Adolf
