Observation 19952: Boletellus emodensis (Berk.) Singer

I do not actually have a reference for this particular Bolete. Left for open suggestions. In saying that, I do believe that it could be " Boletellus emodensis"
I found these specimens on a tree trunk in an area very close to where I photographed some of the last images loaded on 7497.

Recognized by sight: I think Ian Dodd is right; I collected B.emodensis myself two years ago and will post photos when I find time…the only thing that seems a little bit disturbing is that the color is a little bit too pinkish for this species. Or is this due to the camera?

this seems well within the colors stated by Halling for emodensis…

i.e. “deep rhubarb” or “strawberry red”

go to his site comparing boletellus sp. here: http://nybg.org/...

It just looks too red for emodensis…

Boletellus emodensis

Gerhard, Image 40389 was taken in natural light and a Grey card used for colour correction. I colour calibrate my monitors for exhibition photographs. So usually unless very poor natural light, I then use reflectors and as a last resourt, fill flash. The Camera bodies (film & digital) I use, have all been set to neutral colour and I shoot all images in Raw ( which does not add inbuilt features like vivid etc.) When shooting in the areas I frequent, I shoot at ISO100 where there is sufficient light, or up to ISO200 in increments. When the conditions are wet, and high humidity is prevailing, & without direct sunlight, the colours captured are definately more saturated. I hope this has explained the colour of the images presented. And I do agree on emodensis but firstly needed verification. Many thanks. KK
