Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Notes:
Just guessing really on the genus, but these might be a Tylopilus? I need help on east coast Boletales…

These were mild tasting, and there were no staining reactions. The pores are pink when cut.

Not felleus!

Felleus has a fat, bulbous stipe, and a pinkish or reddish purple cap when young. Closer to indecisus, but I’m open to eastern bolete expert opinion; that would NOT be me!

Taste can separate felleus and indecisus

I can’t decide between indecisus and felleus frankly. They are all so similar — even in the field I stare at them. Here is where the taste is key – did you take the dry material with you? Nib on it. If bitter felleus, otherwise indecisus.

Wow that is really growing close to the tree, it must be the end of the season for this species there. I am pretty sure you are right about it being Tylopilus.
