Observation 168924: Tylopilus P. Karst.

Found in the Big Sandy Creek Unit of the Big Thicket National Preserve.
Caps up to 4.0 cm across.
Flesh was creamy and slowly bruised brownish.
The pores bruised a purplish brown quickly and the stipe bruised blackish were handled.
Taste was mild.
Could not get a spore print.
Spores ~ 9.5-13.8(15.0) X 3.2-4.3 microns, oblong to bacciliform.
They have some of the characteristics of T. atronicotianus but the spores seem much too long and narrow as well as cap color, size, and bruising colors of the cap flesh.

You always find all these interesting and mysterious boletes down there. Makes me want to visit the place, but I remember what you told me about the chiggers! :)
I am not convinced this is Tylopilus, judging from the stature and looking at the texture of the stipe. Not sure which genus to place this one…
