Observation 34048: Rhizopogon villosulus Zeller

Hopefully these photos will show the ropey rhizomorphs on the peridium (outside), which can become somewhat separated from the peridium and resemble roots; as well as the rapid blue or reddish-blue staining of the peridium and gleba near the peridium when cut or bruised.
