Observation 77636: Boletus chippewaensis A.H. Sm. & Thiers

When: 2011-09-30

Collection location: Chippewa Co., Michigan, USA [Click for map]

Who: Bonni Thoresen (burrogb)

Specimen available

Collected in a riparian zone with mixed hardwoods and conifers in the Hiawatha National Forest near Whitefish Bay on Lake Superior. Stipe was deep in duff, and at first the mushroom appeared as a huge Leccinum aurantiacum or similar species. There were two other very rotted ones nearby, but this guy had not one maggot throughout.

Excellent tasting, we ate some fresh but dried most of it. I’d be willing to share a thin slice or two if there was any scientific interest! This one was found within 30 miles of Smith’s and Thiers’ type specimen from Sugar Island.
