Who: Rob (gourmand)

No specimen available

This is the 1st of 4 observations, of what I believe are all the same species. All found relatively within about 50 yards, and not seen elsewhere on long hike. I am tentatively calling them B. bicolor. Could also be Butyriboletus spp, but none seem like an exact match, especially because it didn’t really bruise blue. This was a very meaty mushroom. Reticulate over top portion of stipe. No odor, taste very mild and agreeable. At first did not bruise at all, but later bruised blue very slowly. Extremely shallow tube layer. Growing near pine, hemlock, with some beech and maple mixed in.
Standing against the B. bicolor ID is the fact that there is virtually no red on the stipe, and I did not see oaks in the area.
