Collection location: Cull canyon- upper, Alameda Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Pgrunow

No specimen available

Bolete with brown, cracked cap, with yellowish, off-white basal mycelium
Pores depressed at stipe apex and irregularly sized (see photo)
Immediately stained bluish green, slowly becoming darker blue (see photos)
Despite clearly being an older specimen, the cracks in the cap show yellowish brown markings of this species, not reddish.
Under mixed woods, mostly bay and live oak
I’ve been looking for a Xerocomus subtomentosus sensu CA option, but I don’t know how to do it, so I just put the group.
