I’m thinking that you agree, or you wouldn’t have posted this photo! ;)

Dude, where’s my velvety dark cap (this ones as smooth as a baby’s bottom)? Why are those young pores so reddish? Where’s my swollen base? Did it have a lemony flavor? Growing on rotten wood?

I do agree with the Boletus part, though…

WHY did your Mexican colleagues call this one mirabilis? It is far far different than any that I have seen here in the USA.

Are there hemlocks (Tsuga sp.) in Mexico? Does B. mirabilis associate with other conifers in addition to hemlock?
