Observation 49746: Retiboletus ornatipes (Peck) Manfr. Binder & Bresinsky

When: 2010-08-03

Collection location: Blacksburg, Virginia, USA [Click for map]

Who: Mark Prosser (mark prosser)

No specimen available

Found in a small grouping connected together at the stem base, in mixed hardwood/conifer forest. Reticulation appears in straight vertical rows. Pileus seems to remain incurved for an extended period of time. Appears somewhat like Boletus auripes but I’m quite uncertain. Any ideas are appreciated.

Thanks for your guidance on this. The stem reticulation looks like different, like a sub-specie of the ornatipes I’ve photographed before. Mark

is what I’d lean toward here. The reticulation is thick and cover quite a lot of stem and the bright orange flesh looks right too.
