Phylloporus rhodoxanthus

Common Name:  Gilled Bolete

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: Olive-brown

Gills Surface: Yellow 

Comments: 

This mushroom looks exactly like a Bolete from the top, but that notion quickly dissolves once you turn it over because of the bright yellow gills.

The cap surface can range from a fairly vibrant reddish to a duller orange-red. Somewhat velvety texture to the cap. 

In order to correctly identify your Phylloporus species you are going to have to look at the base of the mushroom. This species should have yellow mycelium at the base.

Lookalikes:  

Phylloporus leucomycelinus has white mycelium at the base.
