Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found under d. fir, but spruce and aspen were near by. Kinda a guess on this one, it was large, about 25 cm in diameter. Thought I had found an over-blown B. edulis, but turned it over, and there was the deep dark red pores. The taste was mild, and the flesh and pores bruised blue slowly when cut, the stipe and cap surface did not bruise blue.

The size sounds right and the colors look about right. Did it have a reticulate stipe?
