This mushroom is primarily found in oak woods. Look for the light colored cap and stem. No staining or bruising. White scabers on the stem that darken to grayish or browish with age.

Lookalikes:  

Leccinum scabrum and L. pseudoscabrum are similar but feature more brown tones. Leccinum halopus is mycorrhizal with birch and has a more northern distribution. Leccinum snellii also occurs with birch and has nearly black tones to the cap and stalk.
