You did mention conifers in the vicinity of the spot where these grew in your comment. That and the morphology being consistent with edulis more than with say nobilis steers me toward the edulis group. It’s clearly not variipes and its allies. B. edulis fruits in early summer and then usually takes a break till the fall, but I recall collecting B. edulis under hemlocks at NEMF in Maine in late July 2014.

I was hoping you had an opinion!

This was my first summer in Plymouth and I wasn’t paying too much attention. As I recall it was pretty small, and the area collected is mostly hardwoods with some spruce, fir, and hemlock around. Perhaps sect. Boletus is a better choice?

It does look like a taxon from the edulis group. On the other hand, the habitat appears to be deciduous and the collection date is July 9 (mid-summer), suggesting it could be a different member of the porcini clade. Thoughts?
