…anything about the distribution of B. subappendiculatus east of the Rockies. In “Bessette, Alan E., William C. Roody & Arleen Raines Bessette (2000): North American Boletes. A Color Guide to the Fleshy Pored Mushrooms. Syracuse Univ Pr. p.91” I’ve red “known only from California and the Pacific Northwest”:


Are there any databases with the findings of mushrooms available to answer your question?

Has this ever been found east of the Rockies? I didnt vote against it, but did look into it and could not find anything else with low to no staining and red reticulation. But did not vote FOR it because it was West Coast.

Why do you think this is not Boletus appendiculatus? The photos of this finding and many web pics of B. appendiculatus looks very similar. Please give a reason for your vote against B. appendiculatus.
