Observation 89511: Boletus L.
When: 2010-08-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: On trail from mile marker 20. Refer to: http://mushroomobserver.org/obs/89058?q=CRPuStipe may be too small and red for:Boletus calopus orhttp://mushroomobserver.org/... appendiculatus Schaeff.http://mushroomobserver.org/observer/observation_search?pattern=Boletus+appendiculatusI realize that stipe alone does not describe a mushroom, but this observation and the one at the link above, look alike, more alike than B. calopus or B. appendiculatus.

Recognized by sight: pale cap, pinkish stipe, yellow pores, strong blue bruising. Bitter taste would have been a good supporting feature to note – I don’t know eastern boletes all that well so I will let Noah and Bill and Walt weigh in on this name.

Walt, have you seen this species? The two observations are from quite different locations, so the chance of a stray from the west would appear very remote.

a species usually found west of the Mississippi River, with no records on this site from Eastern North America.

This isn’t B. appendiculatus,

you should have tasted it if it is bitter. I believe it to belong to the Calopodes.
