Observation 291496: Boletaceae Chevall.

Hardwood area with mostly beech. No oak.

Cap surface reddish brown closer to center and yellowish brown closer to the margin, subtomentose.

Stipe surface yellow with reddish ares, and with irregularly shaped raised areas that readily bruise blue.

Pores dingy reddish, bruising black.

Context staining blue. Context in stipe base dark red to almost black.

Spores 11-4 × 4-4.5.

This specimen was post mature. Within 30 feet, in the same beech-dominated area, obs 291497 was found, a younger specimen almost certainly representing the same species as 291496 (this obs).
