The first official MO record of this species from NJ, the northernmost record on MO, and maybe the first known record from the Garden State, too.
Growing in soil/needle duff under pitch pines, not being attached directly to any wood as far as I could tell.

…this one was in exceptional condition. It was preserved, and is stored in my fridge. Will probably get it sequenced eventually through NAMP.
I remember the area where the Burghardts and I found it, though I haven’t returned to that spot since.
Buchwaldoboletus is pretty uncommon. I think this one was my second and last sighting of it so far. The first one was in ME in September 2013 during a bolete workshop at Eagle Hill Institute. I think it was lignicola. I recall the Bessettes were very excited about it. I am sure they saved that collection.
All three entries in the Bessettes/Roody Bolete book note them as “rare”. I’ve never seen one either.
to be in perfect condition. I don’t recall ever IDing anything I have found over the years as Buchwaldoboletus.
…will be coming your way shortly via email, Luke.
I would love to see what’s in Both’s book about these two entities. Thank you!
I noticed that Murrill notes in “The Boletaceae of North America II” that this species has been collected in New Jersey and New York.
Peck describes a species he called Boletus fulvus (an illegitimate name that was used for an earlier polypore) in 1900 in the Bull. Torrey bot. Club 27(6): 14-21., based on a collection made by Charles McIlvaine in West Philadelphia. Murrill further speculates in “The Boletaceae of N.A. II” that perhaps the species that McIlvaine collected was B. hemichrysus. The descriptions and habitat are fairly similar. Pecks holotype for fulvus sits in the the New York State Museum but I cannot find a modern reference to what it might be.
It was indeed a very exciting find. Didn’t expect to stumble upon it in NJ!
