Quote from N.American Boletes “In order to have the most success identifying Boletes,you need to adopt an attitude of measured flexibility when interepeting features.The art of field identification is knowing the point at which flexibility exceeds credibility.” :)
And then it could also be a species not yet identified or fruiting outside its known range.The unknown excites me,it would be so cool to find a shroom unknown or new to science.I try to ID everything I can even though Im no expert.If you cant ID something Im interested.Great Observation…
