No specimen available

These were large, dotting one side of the main path through Zone 15, growing under quaking aspen and jack pine. The one I uprooted had a hollow stem infested with maggots. Pale yellowish/cream colored angular pores, brown cap with reddish tones here and there, white stipe, black scabers — other than the size, your standard-issue Leccinum.
