Walt could very well be right in his ID. The hymenophore seems not “yellow” enough. Knowing if the flesh was white and stained pink to pale red would help.

take a look at my obs 88655 please: “Rubinoboletus” caespitosus. I would like to know about your opinion on that one.

Ah, yes, you’re quite right, Gerhard – I’d forgotten. Thanks for that.

Martin: if you care to preserve a specimen, please follow the guidelines for collecting specimens posted on my Boletineae website. Thanks!

The good news is that I know where this was and can keep an eye out this season. Maybe I can send you some. Do you have any requirements? (such as placing a sample in a solution to preserve DNA) Due to a similar request from Rick Kerrigan, I recently supplied material that is said to be new to this continent. Ain’t mycology grand?

Would you like a sample of this for the NYBG herbarium?

in the sense of Smith & Weber’s SE Mushroom book? the pileus topography reminds me of that, but I have not seen this thing in the USA (or anywhere else for that matter). Thanks for the posting!
