which is why I was leaning towards citriniporus at first. but what about the debris stuck to the stipe?

this sucker is just not fitting neatly anywhere.

on this it’s safe to say it’s definitely not A. flaviporus. This one is dry and hairy/scaly, no sign of being smooth/viscid…

I can see the similarities w/subtomentosus, too…

except this bolete did NOT blue, the pores remain yellow at age and there sure as heck is no “base coated with whitish mycelium.” Also, that viscid stipe thing.

However, all this debate does explain why we were all scratching out heads over an ID of this little bolete.

The cap kinda fits though, in that it is cracking a bit. Not olive or olive -brown, though, when fresh, more reddish, though ironically when I went to check the no longer so fresh specimen, it was changing to olive tones. but it’s decaying, so…who knows.

yeah, I went back and forth on those two names…

but the cap just doesn’t look dark enough for citrinoporus, the stipe WAS viscid (see leaf litter stuck to it), and it did have those shallow longitudinal ribs mentioned in the Bessette book.

the cap didn’t seem to be formerly viscid (quite dry at this point), but the rest fit pretty well with flaviporus.
