Tells: Conspicuous white netting darkens when handled. Reddish-brown, oft-wrinkled cap. Grows under pine. White cap flesh can have a reddish-brown zone near the cap skin.
Other Information: “B. subcaerulescens that grows under pine, has no lemon smell, and does not bruise blue at all.” Creamy pores DNS, & age through darkening yellow toward brown. Stem broadens going down, sometimes even to bulbous.
Science Notes: It took DNA to prove this was a new species rather than a version of the European B. pinophilus. Some issues have arisen regarding the appropriate name due to what seems to be confused samples at the herbarium level. We are sticking with the current name until all questions have been resolved.
