I’ll soon get around to putting the spores under the scope and measuring them. Maybe spore size will help narrow it down….(?)

great find!

I have only seen this weird, yellow, saprobic bolete in man-made habitats, i.e. woodchips.

As luck would have it, Roy Halling just sent me the most recent paper on this very interesting genus, hence the new name: Buchwaldoboletus pseudolignicola.
The pores bluing and the stem orangy fits that sp. well; its Japanese location for the type specimen doesn’t.

Can’t find a description for B. sphaerocephalus that describes either color…altho the cespitose growth on pine fits.

That’s a pretty good proposal in my mind
