Recognized by sight: Brown cap lacking maroon tones and a brown stipe with reticulation at the apex; one can make an argument in favor of T. badiceps by noting the similar color scheme in age and beveled cap margin

-just from the field taste. The oak shut-down seems to have been happening here in the last week. Only two boletes have I found under oaks since about a week ago.

a nice and rare find at the end of September — these have a decent flavor when dried and then used in soups. In my neck of the woods (NJ) all boletes mycorrhizal with oaks “shut down” about two weeks ago and now if I want to see one I have to look under conifers.
