Observation 75437: Boletus barrowsii Thiers & A.H. Sm.

Rather large in size (about 17cm at cap margin), found at 9,500 ft. under aspen and spruce bruises blue. Seems simular to s. tomentosus, but no pines in sight.

I recently packed some edulis and two pristine b. barrowsii in my cooler on my last sierra trip. When I took them out to prep for dinner they had blue staining on the pores.

Boletus barrowsii can bruise blue, too…

It’s in Arora, and I have been checking every edulis-group bolete I have found this fall.

This has to be the ugliest b. barrowsii I have ever seen. It did bruise blue. It was found near another b. barrowsii though?
