Observation 85024: Boletus zelleri Murrill

When: 2011-12-23

Collection location: near Georgetown, El Dorado Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: fewteeth

No specimen available

This particular bolete (perhaps Suillus) grows in abundance some years in our mixed pine and oak forest. The red stem and white flesh under the cap are distinctive. It is an excellent edible with the tubes removed and cap peeled. I can find nothing close to it in my references. We would like to know what we are eating.
