Harry Thiers’ “California Mushrooms: A Field Guide to the Boletes of California” (description only) or the Bessette’s “North American Boletes,” color photos and descriptions. You can find the Thiers book on Mykoweb.

Please dry and save and get it to one of our local herbariums…either UC Berkeley or the Thiers Herbarium at SFSU. It’s quite rare.

Nice going!

I still had it & cut it in half to show the pink. I’ll have to read up on this one.I don’t see it in Arora, where is a good reference?

it does look like amyloideus…

and Canyon has contiguous habitat with Huckleberry.
If this specimen is amyloideus, the cap context would be pink.

Cut the cap in half if you still have it…
