The original and most widely distributed "bitter bolete" has a brown pileus, coarsely reticulated brown stipe, a pore surface that is white at first, becoming pinkish-flesh color at maturity, and white flesh that becomes pale pink when cut. Most frequently found around decaying conifer stumps and under spruce in the company with Boletus edulis (Bulliard).
