I assume the name “Boletus campestris group”

does not include B. fraternus, which is listed in the Big NA book as a seperate species. Otherwise I’d give Noah’s proposal an “I’d call it that.”

…Although there are a few traits here that remind me more of campestris than fraternus; thickness of stipe and solitary growth habit.

Ah, a fine…

specimen from the bicolor section — good luck keying this one out even with the help of B-R-B! Patricularly striking is the solid red color scheme with a very dull yellow color of the pore surface. I see a trace of bluing in the middle of the stipe. I’ve definitely encountered something very similar here in NJ that invariably defied identification…

Thanks Andrew

for the underside photo. I don’t have a clue. That is a very nice red cap.

I took this photo years ago
