Other Information: Found only in Grass Valley & Nevada City, CA. Spore print color unknown. Extraordinarily rare.
Edibility: Unknown, but the similarity to edulis variations is a very good sign.
Science Notes: Whole genome testing results have thrown the name of this mushroom into dispute. Strict adherence to the rules (despite an obvious human error) would require a merger of the well known B. regineus into this species into the extraordinarily rare B. mottiae, with the B. mottiae finds getting a brand new name. This site will refrain from such chaotic and confusing changes until absolutely necessary.
