Name in North American Boletes: Fuscoboletinus spectabilis
- Genus 2: Fuscoboletinus
Tells: Bright reddish scales cover pink- to orange-red, viscid cap. Yellow cap flesh slowly stains pink, resolving to brown, smells nasty/pungent, & may taste sour.
Other Information: Yellow pores age to brown & typically bruise pinkish. Viscid stem is yellow above the red-brown ring & pink-red on yellow below it. Usually has remains of the veil hanging off the edge of the cap. Likes larch in wetlands, & may grow on stumps.
Science Notes: DNA testing eliminated the genus Fuscoboletinus and moved all its members to Suillus except for paluster, which has been placed (probably for just the moment) in Boletus.
