When: 2006-11-20

Collection location: Menlo Park, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Cleaning up some other observations here.

These are nice buttons of this bolete, I found a few under this live oak. The pores are red, but no spores yet. The button nice and fat, and stains blue anywhere, esp. when cut.

I am calling these amygdalinus. Although I can’t seem to tell the difference between this and erythropus, except for vague statements about brownish and pinking cap colors. So, I will go with amygdalinus until someone can show me what is the clear difference between these.
