we don’t get this one out west, but it is pretty famous anyway…

due to its having been placed in seven different genera over the past 100 years! the last was created for it alone, because it just wouldn’t fit neatly into any of the others. bad bolete, go to your herbarium! ;)

Genera countdown:
Boletinus (1900)
Boletinellus (1909)
Gyrodon (1938)
Xerocomus (1958)
Suillus (1964)
Chalciporus (1996)
Bothia (named in honor of Ernst Both, Boletologist; 2007)

Oak and beech woods.

I saw some last month in Ohio, and some a week later in PA.

Nice find!
