Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These were found in the southern section Of the Turkey Creek Unit.
Caps were up to 4.8 cm across.
The cap flesh was light yellow and slowly turned a blue-green.
The adnate pores also were a little slow to blue.
Except for the reddish spotting the stem was basically smooth.
Spore print was olive brown and spores were ~ 12.0-14.0 X 4.4-5.2 microns, fusiform with relatively rounded ends.
These to me look like a hybrid of 2 or 3 species so I’ll leave it to the more local bolete specialists to put a name on them.
