Boletus subglabripes

Common Name: None

Synonyms: Leccinum subglabripes

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwood forests

Spore Color: Olive-brown

Pore Surface: Yellow 

Comments: 

This is surely not the easiest of Boletes to identify with certainty. Here are my notes from this species:

Some minor bluing in the context when sliced. No pore bruising immediately. Possibly bruising olive with time.

Stem with very small red hairs that clears at the apex. No reticulation.

 

Chemical Reactions:

NH4 – Dark red/purple
KOH – Purple
FE – No rxn on cap. Context slowly grayish olive-green

Lookalikes:  

Boletus hortonii has more corrugations in the cap. Leccinum rugosiceps has flesh that slowly reddens when exposed.
