I didn’t have a field shot for that one! So it ended up being a low light lamp shot.
I’ll let you off the hook on that one! :)

Thanks for persevering with me!

Yeah, Geoff, I recall trying to figure that one out while forgetting that your pix taken at home distort the colors quite a bit. Hence, my Xerocomus proposal was way off the mark (oops!). I am going to blame you for my blooper, of course. :)))

…at the cap flesh — a mix of red, blue on white. Hence the name.
I don’t know if they are edible… Probably, but who cares, right?
I am no longer pursuing this species for DNA — it sits in the subfamily Boletoideae, in its own (new) genus based on TEF-1 (see obs 338178). It’s a neat species.

Aw yeah

I think we did this before. I’m realizing they don’t have brilliant yellow pores.
I just tasted them, slight lemon but pretty good!
