Observation 48855: Boletus

When: 2010-07-19

Collection location: Geneva, Switzerland [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found and id’ed by others at the SMG meeting.

People didn’t know what to make of these. There were a bunch of names tossed around in the discussion, and none seemed to really stick. The pores are red-orange to red-olive-brown, but yellow at the margins. The stipe is bright yellow, and the cap has mostly pink tones. All tissues stain blue on bruising, the flesh is bright yellow that quickly turns blue when cut.

These two were found by the same person on the same outing, but there was discussion if these were the same or not. The older one has a strongly reticulate stipe, with only yellow at the apex, the younger one has a non-reticulate stipe, and bruises brown-violet or so on handling.

Thought I would toss them out here, and see if anyone wanted to state an opinion.
