Observation 76548: Leccinum cyaneobasileucum Lannoy & Estadès

When: 2011-09-17

Collection location: Larkspur, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

Specimen available

Notes:
This is apparently the new name for what we have been calling Leccinum scabrum for specimens we have been finding locally under planted European Birches.
“Birch Bolete” still works for me.
Spores were ~ 14.9-17.0 X 5.3-6.9 microns. Spores for this species are reported to be “fusiform to narrowly fusiform with a suprahilar depression”.
