When: 2006-07-16

Collection location: Chester, New Jersey, USA [Click for map]

Who: I. G. Safonov (IGSafonov)

No specimen available

A single specimen growing in association with hardwoods. Looks more like a Leccinum rather than Boletus. Note the peculiar stipal ornamentation (not a true reticulation though) and the extremely pitted pilepellis.
