that I have illustrated zelleri-like boletes with orange pores before.

your x-section certainly shows yellow tubes and orange pores (as described for mendocinensis) but the Thiers’ description for mendocinensis sez NO red color on cap within cracks. there is clearly a red layer here underneath the pilipelis…so what IS this??!

Here’s a thought…would somebody anybody collect some of these disputed boletes and take it a bit deeper? under the scope or into the lab for the DNA? we have the ability to do this now…may as well use it!

Thanks Alan!
