Observation 20739: Boletus L.

When: 2007-11-22

Collection location: Springbrook National Park, Queensland, Australia [Click for map]

Who: Noah Siegel (Noah)

No specimen available

This one reminded me of a Tapinella with pores when I picked it. It had a dry velvety feel to it, a somewhat woody/tough flesh, no odor or taste. It was also growing through (maybe on?) well decayed wood.

It probably isn’t growing on the wood, could be just fruiting there because of the moisture that the decaying log was holding. (I’ve edited my original description)

Whatever it was it was a strange one.

Noah, I haven’t seen this one before either. I’m not sure that the decayed wood is significant though. I’d go for a Boletus sp. right now.
