Observation 74598: Boletaceae Chevall.

When: 2011-08-21

Collection location: Rancocas State Park, New Jersey, USA [Click for map]

Who: I. G. Safonov (IGSafonov)

No specimen available

A boring, drab-colored bolete on the outside comes to life when cut in half. The cap is tan, the stipe is whitish-gray and the pore surface is isabeline. No scabers on the stipe, but there is some texture to it in the form of longitudinal striations (visible a bit in the first photo).


It took the color a few minutes to reach the intensity pictured here

Leccinum seems likely; that thing looks really rain beaten!
