I live very close to the spot, and have been checking it regularly ever since, but, alas, these critters haven’t fruited again. It’s also interesting that 2013 was the only year when grass grew under the trees.

Thanks Igor.

recently document by Naveed Davoodian et al. I think I may have actually contributed material to this effort. Philly, do you know where one may find a description of G. borealis?

Is this not

The rain will surely bring some boletes out and everything else, too, even this early in the season. It’s a shame we are having a deluge in June, not later. Variety always comes in later in summer. Let’s hope there will be plenty of rain when we really need it!

Judging from all the rain that has fallen, and the hot temps that are on the way, you should soon be in Bolete Heaven down there in SE PA and adjacent NJ!
