vote of high confidence. This tells me that we can likely rule out the “other similar species” idea. Time to call it “Boletus frostii.”
Dave ~ The photo I posted here was shot in flat light – total cloud cover. The colors are actually really accurate. It looked a little more rusty than bright red in color. Beautiful mushroom! I defer to those who know more than I as to what it is :)
The stipe color is a bit lighter than one may expect.
Also, species of Boletus tend to vary for southern and northern regions on NA. So, based upon my person experience with species of Boletus (mainly PA and point to the north), I find it difficult to rule out that this could be something other than frostii. That’s why I posted at “promising” level of confidence.
Thanks for your input Dave. Actually, this specimen was young and very fresh, popped up just after rain and temperature drop.
