Collection location: Pipi Valley, El Dorado Co., California, USA [Click for map]
The date is only accurate to the month.
Identified by sight. Collected on a weekend trip up to the Sierra with Phil Carpenter and other friends from the Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz.
These are some examples of the spring porcini that comes up in the Sierra mountains. They are pretty clearly distinct from the European Boletus edulis and I believe there is some genetic evidence to that effect. I’ve heard Boletus rexvernus has been proposed as a name. However, as of July 2006 I don’t believe that name has actually been published.

Just because a collection was made before a (provisional) name change happened doesn’t mean I can’t apply the new name to it. In fact the site will do that spontaneously when names get deprecated.
