We mailed you 1/2 of one of the sporocarps in the collection on Thursday, May 29.

I’d like to request a part of the specimen

if you’d be willing, we’d like to sequence it and compare it
to the darker-capped, red-stiped CA varieties.

The cap texture of this observation reminds me more of Xerocomellus zelleri, but
the stipe and cap are still extremely pale for that species.

The stipe is overexposed

and my correction did not work.
Spores were large and some were truncated. Adolf
P.S. I posted it as an illustration to Oluna’s herbarium specimen. I am preparing them for accessioning into the UBC herbarium.

Did you actually look at the spores?

The cap and stipe colors seem very off
for the B./X.truncatus group.
