Color might be a bit off because I had no paper bags left to put these in so they turned a bit dark from being in a plastic bag for about an hour before taking them out.

The caps are not as “red wine” colored as they appear, more of a “brick red” color, which they are often described as having.

I have been picking this area for a while, here are some from under the same trees I found these.


The color of the pilei was something more like this before touching a plastic bag and not being able to “breathe”

Well the color is wrong

And the tube bruising a bit strong. It would help if next time you cut one to show the tube length and flesh bruising. Boletus bicolor is a complex and some cause digestive upsets.

Mr. Walt why do you think these are not Boletus bicolor?

I picked them at the same spot I alway pick Boletus bicolor at, I know that really means nothing because new mushrooms move into edible patches all the time, but what macroscopic features point to a different Boletus species?

Please help me learn, thank you :)
