and one from Ron Pastorino:


even your obsie of flaviporus, Noah, looks like you broke off a white thin continuation of the stipe (see small white bump at stipe base), much like Byrain’s obsie:


yeah, I just saw that obsie yesterday….

but that is one weird rooting stipe! is it even fungal? or an actual root?

We have to start digging these. I wonder how many have deep rooting stipes that we miss/break off. http://mushroomobserver.org/91252?q=DHip

different qualities of pink…

but I take your point. this one, despite growing in the same habitat as other amyloideus that I have found here, had a number of differences that I glossed over at the time.

that rooting stipe, for one.

as to the pore surface color, somehow I transposed the flaviporus description to amyloideus.

so, I concur on this ID. It’s more likely to be flaviporus.

can have pink context as well. The viscid extremely viscid cap and stipe and bright yellow pores don’t really fit B. amyloideus

bright pink cap context.

it was otherwise quite dissimilar from other collections that I have made.

I just saw two more of this species at Huck yesterday…the largest fruit bodies I have ever seen (one cap was 8 cm across!).

isn’t this one Aureoboletus flaviporus?
