That’s good info for me, if the pores and flesh blue quickly they are NOT B. rubropunctus

and I gladly retract my guess of rubropunctus and given that I have no opinion of what they might be. There’s a bunch of them though.

These Boletes, for the most part stain blue VERY fast on the pores and when the cap is cut them same. Getting a spore print has not been successful on these, they leave nothing but moisture. The Bolete in the upper right seems to be the bicolor? This mushroom does not bruise quickly and the flesh does not blue when cut in half. The stipe seems almost solid red.

OK if not rubropunctus

then what? This ID is, of course, shooting from the hip at a jackrabbit at 50 yards (i.e. the pics not good for ID-ing) but the cap is right, the stipe is punctate, the pore surface is right, what is it about these mushrooms that say to you “not rubropunctus”?

Boletus for this group, two wrongs don’t make a right… That being said I was the first person to use Leccinum rubropunctum on this site; not because I wanted to but because the others in this group on this site were being called Leccinum

There was a lengthy discussion on this topic here

Oh, and I don’t think any of these boletes pictured are B. rubropunctus

Boletus now Leccinum?

Alan you seem to be of the opinion that this mushroom (Boletus rubropunctus) has been reassigned back into Leccinum from Boletus? Can you give a reference for this I’d like to find out the reason for this. I thought all the recent DNA work on this group of “pseudo-Leccinums” (B. rubropunctus, B.longicurvipes, B.subglabripes) failed to support this reassignment. I might have missed something. Thanks.

the pic of the collection I think I may see one small Tylopilus… brown cap with brown stains on the pores.

seems to be most of the collection but there’s at least two other boletes in that mix

several species?

It appears you might have several species mixed together, its common to find Boletus species mixed together. But Boletus bicolor has a stipe that’s all red, or fairly close. It also bruises blue on the yellow tube surface, but I would not recommend eating blue staining Boletus species unless you are 110% sure of the ID, or are a seasoned Boletus hunter.
