Observation 71268: Boletus nobilis Peck

Notes:
This bolete did not stain, have prominent reticulation, or taste bitter. Its stipe was a buff color and rather fragile. (maybe some bugs).
The cap was tan to brown, and had short tubes white young, and slightly off white when mature.

I did KOH on them last year and didnt get any reaction. Not looking at Bessette , so I dont know if thats accurate or not. Agree about the taller. Ive only photographed ones that Bill has confirmed on a couple occasions.

if this was a little taller and slender I would go towards Boletus nobilis which has the same colors. Compare them, see what you think.
