Boletus clavipes

(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).
