Common Name: Russell's Bolete

Synonyms: Boletus russellii

Substrate: Ground

Comments: 

This is one of the most recognizable boletes because of the very prominent reticulation on the stem. It has a long, thin stem with a small cap. The cap has a reddish-brown to yellowish-brown coloration.

Lookalikes:  

Heimioporus betula has a similar stature and reticulation, but has a slimy cap when wet, shiny cap when dry. Boletus frostii has deep reticulation, but a red cap.
