Observation 44865: Boletellus dissiliens (Corner) Pegler & Young

The pileus flesh is yellow but is soon obscured by the rapid oxidation reaction (blue) and appears whitish. The stipe is pale, nearly white, and stains a brownish orange within and without. Occurs with Eucalyptus, Syncarpia, and Allocasuarina.


Several basidiomes were found scattered on sand roadbank, sometimes affiliated with dead wood. Removed for studio image.
A solitary collection from Lake Boomanjin (REH9271 in BRI & NY, different date) but shows the distinctive, localized oxidation reactions.
