The flat white pore surface and prominent white reticulation: These are the first of the B. edulis type I have found. I am not sure whether there are two collections here or not…, But the mushrooms are similar. In addition to being hollow, the pore layer is thicker than the cap. Not appetizing.

Recognized by sight: This is clearly a bolete from the B. edulis group. Too much reticulation to be B. nobilis, and the stipe lacks a brownish background to be B. variipes. The corrugated cap and whitish stipe with promiment reticulation may thus suggest B. atkinsonii, though the reticulation should also be darker than here. B. hortonii has a smooth pale yellow stipe, light yellow-green pore mouths, and is a corrugated version of B. subglabripes.

This is too wimpy for B. nobilis isn’t it? If you think this color is odd, I have got an ob. just like it with a red-brown cap.

May be

an odd colored B. separans. Looks like B.nobilis but as Ivan has pointed out the reticulation is too prominent. I would also say that it is too prominent for B. atkinsonii as well.

Thank you I. G. Safonov!

Then that would be my first from the B. edulis group! Cheers! I have a couple of other observations from the same patch that I will post. Thanks again.
