Collection location: Washington Crossing State Park, New Hope, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]
Project: Northeast Bolete Consortium
Two small and thin-stiped fruiting bodies growing inside a row of planted P. abies. Bluing of the pores, stipe surface, and context was observed. The spores are smooth and not truncate, as visualized at x400 without a mounting medium (more precise measurements TBD).
I am certain obs 149448 from 5 years ago fruited only 10-15 yards from present collection, albeit it grew in the grass strip between the road and the spruce row and had a much more robust stature than this collection. Nonetheless, I surmise they are the same taxon. If the spores turn out to be smooth at x1000, which I expect them to be, then it’s not X. intermedius.
