According to various sources, this is a rare Bolete which has been found in only a couple of locations in the Pacific Northwest. More specifically, the “Trial field key to the BOLETES in the Pacific Northwest” (http://www.svims.ca/council/Bolete.htm)2 mentions only two prior observation locations (see below). It also mentions that the species is too small to be of culinary value. I doubt this because the specimen recorded in Mushroom Observer Observation 118724 was fairly large.
