Boletus campestris

Common Name: None

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: Olive-brown

Pore Surface: Yellow. Bruises blue.

Comments: 

There are several small boletes that fit very closely together in the B. campestris group. The members of this group will have a small stature, reddish cap, and blue staining pores. Some of the things I look for to differentiate this one is first, a base is fairly equal (it does not taper), it has small pore openings, and a often a grassy habitat. 

Lookalikes:  

Boletus rubellus will have usually have a stem that is tapered and is often punctate (has small red dots) up the entire stem. Boletus fraternus usually has a very cracked cap with maturity.
