Observation 72444: Retiboletus griseus (Frost) Manfr. Binder & Bresinsky
When: 2011-07-20
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These are larger and colored a bit differently than griseus that I’ve found in the past. I’ve also been running across what appears to be very faded ornatipes specimens. So this has me wondering just a bit.

Spore print showed no reddish tint. So I think we can rule out Tylopilus. I’m just not used to seeing griseus fruit bodies that are this large/robust.

I’ll kick up the proposal to “I’d call…”

This is likely to be R-b. griseus; carefully read the description in the big bolete book — I think it is more than a reasonable match. The only remote possibility is T. variobrunneus, which is rather rare.
