I wonder if we ever find the elusive T. tabacinus. By the way I submitted two more durhamensis/tabacinus suspects for sequencing, obs 248713 and obs 254972. The latter one has a non-reticulate, furfuraceous stipe. We shall see what the future holds.

Thank you Dave.

…confirms Boletus durhamensis. This collection is the first proven record from VA.

the decurrent tubes reminded me of Bothia castanella. But the prominently reticulate stipe immediately informs otherwise. T. tabacinus seems like a good proposal.

Nice find, Dario. I love how those decurrent tubes seamlessly transition into the prominent reticulation. This is very unusual for Tylopilus.
