My aunt found this mushroom and brought it back to the cabin where we were staying at Babcock State park. The gnarly underside looked really cool, but the neatest thing about this bolete is the bluing reaction. When cut in half, the context of the cap immediately turned blue, but the flesh of the stem remained yellow.
