Observation 47107: Boletus variipes Peck

When: 2010-06-18

Collection location: Cuyahoga Co., Ohio, USA [Click for map]

Who: IcelandicSojourn

No specimen available

Mild taste, fairly pleasant. No bluing. Reticulation on upper portion of stalk, brown in the Specimen 1, whitish in Specimen 2. Specimen 1: Images 1-5. Specimen 2: Image 6. Specimen 3: Image 7. I’m not sure if I have multiple species here. They were all growing in close proximity, especially specimens 1 & 2.

I was thinking somewhere along the lines of Boletus edulis/separans… Any suggestions very welcome.

Apologize for the blurry first pic. This was the mushroom I kept, and the flesh had incredible staying power (remaining white). Ate a small piece with no stomach problems. There was a setting on my camera I didn’t realize was on that made everything appear more green. Not sure if it was on here, but that may explain it.

I like the look of Tylopilus ferrugineus as a possible match for the first mushroom. Cap in 7th pic more dark violet than camera shows. I went back, but the mushrooms were very dried by the sun. All I could confirm was that the mushroom in the first pic had consistent brown reticulation, and the second mushroom (image 6) had white reticulation throughout all specimens… both only at the top of the stalk. Maybe they’ll fruit again.

seems to show some light blue on the left near the stipe, and on the right near the fingers. Are you certain there was no bluing? Is the color in the photo not accurate?

two species…

one is a Tylopilus, probably T. ferrugineus. The 6th picture looks like Boletus variipes
