I have collected this at two locations in Wiscosin. More than once on the base of a very large living larch, at the edge of a cedar swamp, in the northern part of the state and once on the exposed roots of a large dead larch that had ben blown over, in the southcentral part of the state. Unforgetable fungus, the “bee pollen” topping gets on everything it contacts.

I found something similar last year…

http://www.sciencebuff.org/... There is no DNA data to support their conclusions but they do seem to agree that there is sufficient differences between these species. I can’t seem to set up a good link to this article but it is easily accessible with a Google search of “Buchwaldoboletus” or “Preliminary Survey of the Genus Buchwaldoboletus” by B. Ortiz-Santana & E. Both.

I would have called it Boletus hemichrysus. http://mushroomobserver.org/name/show_name/1116
MO seems to prefer Buchwaldoboletus sphaerocephalus but I’m not convinced they are the same species.
In any event, there still seems to be some question as to whether these are all the same species.

Buchwaldoboletus lignicola in the U.S.? This looks exactly like it. Also the habitat with pine stumps would suit. The “powdery” yellowish-olive cap, stipe, everything matches. But I am not sure about the distribution of this rare species.
