Observation 471724: Chalciporus Bataille

When: 2021-10-07

Collection location: Midland, Michigan, USA [Click for map]

Who: Eric (eozkan)

No specimen available

Collected this singular bolete with a golden cap and flesh that exhibited a brilliant vermillion color upon slicing. Found only a single example with maples, oaks, birch, and conifers in the vicinity. Have never observed this color before. Mushroom is in pretty good shape so don’t believe that the unusual color is due to a decay process. Would appreciate help with identification.
