Ron, before I checked the date of your obsie, I was shaking my head at another perplexing late season bolete!

Geez Nathan, ya shoulda had this site up years ago, it would’ve saved a lot of confusion! ;)

Can your site sort obsies by date of sightings, rather than date of posting? It would be nice to see what’s fruiting chronologically…

A dried specimen is available.

First started finding T. humilus in 1999 and continued to find it in the same area almost every year since although not this last 2006 winter. I do have a single dried specimen from 1999 with a few notes and a photo.

Similar to Monterey Tylopilus

Neat find! There’s a similar Tylopilus that comes up on the Monterey Peninsula around the time of the Santa Cruz fair. It is also short and I seem to remember it having pinkish pores, but I’m not certain. It would be great to have some dried material of these if you see it again.

Wow – This is a rare Tylopilus. I could only find ONE photo of it, in the Bessette Bolete book. Good going Ron!
