Collection location: Sabine National Forest, Sabine Co., Texas, USA [Click for map]
Single fb growing in mixed woods.
Cap 2.25 cm across.
Flesh light yellow with no bruising and pores not bruising.
Could not get a spore print and extracted spores yellowish in KOH.
Spores ~ 8.0-10.0 X 3.9-4.5 microns, mostly cylindrical, smooth with oil droplets.
Smallish spores seem to eliminate a few potential possibilities.

a good possibility Igor.
An isolated fruit body in a semi-foreign land may not have all the classic features.
Unfortunately I didn’t spend a lot of time on it(before drying) so I can’t answer your questions.
Thanks for the input.
The color scheme reminds me of Aureoboletus innixus, but the shape of the stipe suggest otherwise. The spore size is a good fit with A. innixus as well. Were the tubes “xerocomoid”, i.e. splitting in half when pulled away from each other? What about macrochemical tests?
