Retiboletus griseus

Common Name: Ornate-Stalked Bolete

Synonyms: 

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: Unknown

Pore Color: Gray, staining brown

Comments: 

This bolete should be a fairly easy ID. Look for the gray cap, yellow stem, and gray pore surface that stains brown. Next look at the stem. There should be reticulation - a netting look to the stem. With all of these features you should have your ID.

Lookalikes:  

Retiboletus ornatipes is similar but has a gray cap.
