We usually have a few Zeller’s near evergreen well into February- but never in Late April… We always find our Boletus rex veris in Spring from April through late June in the mountains on the eastern side of the cascades, though like clockwork. Too bad it’s still snowing in those parts this season :(

It has been a historically cool and wet spring in western WA, though. Maybe the boletes are just confused? If so, I’m going to keep my eyes open for Boletus edulis! :)

These usually occur in October & November in Washington and Oregon (based on a search of observations), but I guess not exclusively!
