Observation 299848: Boletus variipes group

A single mature but rather scrawny specimen, with a reduced moisture content due to the dry conditions, found deep in mixed deciduous woods. I think I recall seeing beech and oak in the area; there might have been some pine nearby, too.
I used to remember the approximate collection site on the park map, but now my memories are rather vague, and the only detail I can recall is that it was somewhere to the west/southwest of the southern end of Park Road, probably in the vicinity of West Trail and West Creek.
Half of this collection was transferred to Dr. B.T.M. Dentinger at UMNH in March 2018.

Proposed Names

Based on chemical features: The nrITS sequence derived by Dr. Dentinger from this collection confirms the placement. Dr. Dentinger writes: “The MO299848 sequence is slightly different [from obs 217124 & obs 288500], but this needs confirmation. It may just be an artifact, so at the moment I wouldn’t put too much stock in its distinctiveness”. At any rate, it’s clearly NOT the same species as the “other variipes” represented by obs 282673.
