Observation 26305: Leccinum rugosiceps (Peck) Singer

When: 2009-09-21

Collection location: Big Thicket, Tyler Co., Texas, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

These became more interesting after I got home and reviewed the pictures and the brief description in my notes.
They look somewhat like a Leccinum with light orange-yellow scabers. The caps were up to 6.2cm across and the stipe ~8cm. The light orange-yellow cap was rugose and somewhat rimose. There was no significant bruising of the creamy flesh or pores but the photos show a light browning and there are some reddish stains on the lower stipe.
The spores were brown to olive brown and were about 16 X 5 microns.(see photo)
I didn’t taste these.

It matches well well the references that I NOW find. Initially I wasn’t even thinking Leccinum as the scabers were so light colored.
