Observation - _MG_2204. Description: Rather mystified by this bolete (Leccinum). Was in mixed scots pine/birch/poplar woodland, these were actually nearest the poplars. Do distinctive taste i.e. not bitter. There were L. versipelle around and these were clearly not that species nor L. aur

Rather mystified by this bolete (Leccinum). Was in mixed scots pine/birch/poplar woodland, these were actually nearest the poplars. Do distinctive taste i.e. not bitter. There were L. versipelle around and these were clearly not that species nor L. aurantiacum (unless that becomes more brown as it goes well past its best). It was the brown stem and brown cap that were difficult to explain.
