Re: Red capped, red pored Bolete?

The stem, or what's left of it, is the ragged mess to the right of the main part of the cap. I wouldn't care to guess what colour it was originally, but the surface does seem to be quite rough.

Red capped, red pored Bolete?

I would be interested in opinions on this bolete. It was under oak, and in an area where B luridiformis is common, but the reddish cap makes me think otherwise, while the flesh is pale and bruises only faintly blue. https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/21457728_1971397956412749_27717497961...

Re: Devil's Bolete or not?

Thank you, that certainly makes sense.

The habitat is rough but ungrazed grassland with pine, oak and birch fairly well spaced out. It's extraordinarily rich in boletes, with Penny Buns, red and yellow cracked bolete, bay bolete, brown birch bolete and now this one, just from memory.

Devil's Bolete or not?

When I saw the putty coloured caps of these fungi I thought they were Devil's Bolete, but the undersides and stems are yellow with only patches of red at the base of the stalk. Are they a variety of Devil's Bolete, or something else entirely?
