(Peck) Pilat & Dermek
=Boletus edulis var. clavipes Peck
Photographs by T. J. Baroni ©1998
Peck distinguished this variety from var.
edulis by the "stem tapering upward from an enlarged base, everywhere
reticulated." It appears to prefer eastern white pine (Pinus strobus)
whereas var. edulis may have been introduced in the northeast with planted
Norway spruce (Picea abies).
