Observation 1720: Phylloporus rhodoxanthus (Schwein.) Bres.

When: 2006-12-28

Collection location: Howarth Park, Santa Rosa, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Notes:
While strolling through the woods I saw what seemed surely to be a bolete, only to find it had gills! Which led me to a tentative identification of Phylloporus rhodoxanthus. But the gill structure seems different from those pictured on the web. And the relationship between the gills and the stipe seems interesting.This has a very long stipe (at least 15 cm)and may be growing from the root of a madrone. At any rate it grows right next to the madrone. The pileus is 10.5 cm across.

Definitely Phylloporus

The pulled away gills are probably an age or environmental effect. Based on the discussion in Arora, there is a chance that this is actually Phylloporus arenicola rather than the far more common Phylloporus rhodoxanthus. However, the habitat seems wrong (usually in sand or sandy soil).
