the color balance of this picture is kind of deceiving. The cap was pale red, and the stipe was mottled yellow/pale red. I don’t remember if it bruised or not but I’m assuming it did because the vast majority of red-capped/yellow-pored boletes I find do bruise, and any that didn’t would probably come to mind.

I’m not sure

what it tasted like. If this is the one I’m thinking of it had an extraordinarily cumin-like flavor.

Sort of Looks like badiceps
