Observation 4041: Xerocomellus dryophilus (Thiers) N. Siegel, C.F. Schwarz & J.L. Frank

When: 2003-12-17

Collection location: Tomales Bay State Park, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

Found in the predominately live oak area of the park. I’m still a little conflicted as to whether the cap color is more “old-rose” (B. regius) or “rusty-brown” (B. appendiculatus).
5-27-12. Yes, much more likely to be Boletus dryophilis. Thanks Christian.

on the edge of the cap, really dark red cap, yellow pores and stipe, and blue stains
as well as shape seem better for B./X. dryophilus.
