No specimen available

Amazing bolete, had no idea the ID. David Fischer eventually found it. Very little info available, and every reference I could find claimed “unknown” for edibility. I can testify that it was incredibly flavorful, and there were no ill effects. Sometimes, I just know. I have not seen its return since…

Very slight darker orange reaction when cut; did stain my hands orange; no distinctive odor.

is an excellent way to expedite poisoning and/or death from mushroom consumption. Intuition of any sort is not a replacement for accurate, informed identification.
