Boletus miniato-olivaceus…

stains on the cut context, but rather slowly. So you may have missed this, Chris. Bruising on the pores is quicker and darker.

I didn’t report that this had no staining color. I figured not to say unless it DID change color.

Well, I just saw…

a dozen or so mini-os at Seven Tubs last Sunday. This species initially crossed my mind, but the lighter parts of the cap near the margin look kinda whitish. I’m used to seeing these areas being greenish in mini-o. Habitat fits mini-o.

I often forget about mini-o as I don’t frequently forage in hemlock-dominated woods. I did see this species last weekend at Stokes SF in NW Jersey, but it was mixed in with other red-and-yellow boletes so it went unrecognized for a while before I finally had the aha moment. I am usually “rusty” in early season, which is understandable — you suddenly go from no mushrooms to something like 60-70 species at a late June foray.

Igor, I think you’re probably correct.

Knowing the color of the internal context, and any staining, would help.

Bicolor generally has more red on the stipe.

Also, the pore layer is deeply depressed close to the stipe.
