Boletes found at the base of Q. virginiana on UHouston campus. Brick-red caps, sterile margin, yellow pore surface. Stalks enlarged downwards with red tinge at base, all parts of mushroom instantly staining blue upon minimal contact. Similar to another bolete I saw on this campus that I identified as B. luridellus, with the main difference being the cap color. Saw these guys scattered around the area following a rain.
I was thinking that this might actually be Pulchroboletus rubricitrinus, but after comparing characteristics on wpamushroomclub the bulbous stem on these seems to not fit, and the photos on texasmushrooms show none with this style of stem. The lack of reticulation and no visible puntae (could just not see them) doesn’t indicate one or the other.
