Observation 294133: Boletaceae Chevall.

When: 2017-10-10

Collection location: Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA [Click for map]

Who: Logan Wiedenfeld (LoganW)

No specimen available

Notes:
These were reaching up through some thick jasmine planted at the base of a big suburban live oak. I don’t know if their strange stature and sinuous stipe are consequences of the jasmine through which they had to grow – or what. They’re interesting, whatever the case.

They look kind of like Xerocomellus dryophilus, which also grow under live oak (here on the west coast) and often have long, twisted stems that transition from red at the base to yellow near the top. But they don’t usually have thick, bulbous stems like that (in my experience), and I have no idea if they grow in Louisiana.
