Quiz Time !! Here is a bolete that my mushroom colleagues and I can’t pin down as to species. I FedEx’d about 10 to Alan and Arleen Bessette and they are working it up, but in the meantime I would like to know more about its habitat. So if you think you see it, let me know.
I found them on a flat sandstone ridge top with chestnut oak the dominant species. They were along the ridge top trail or just off the trail for about 10 yards as the slope began. Scroll on down to a picture of the site.
The distinguishing feature is the bright yellow margin of sterile tissue. I could spot it from a distance. See the last picture.
I’ll post more later, but take a picture and send if you think you see this one.
