Boletus badius is one of the four true boletes (excluding genus Suillus, of course) found in the New Jersey Pine Barrens in October, the other ones being the red capped Leccinum species, which is frequently, and perhaps mistakenly, identified as L. aurantiacum (see Michael Cuo’s website for a pertinent discussion), Boletus projectellus, and Boletus/Leccinum subglabripes, all growing in an obligatory assiciation with the pitch pine or other conifers in this unique and beautiful habitat. In my experience, the latter two boletes are no longer fruiting in the second half of October.
