    So this is my first time uploading pics here, hope you enjoy them...

    So, MycoRob, are those Barrowsii or what? It's kind of academic, since they are in my digestive tract, at the moment, but i haven't seen them before....

    Cool...I never see anything but Boletus edulis (still, not so bad)...and if I may, I'll show off my catch from yesterday. B. Edulis and Cantharellus cibarius. I usually don't take the large boletes, but they were already down.

    >> I thought the whites were a new mexico thing?
    I haven't seen them, but this is only my 2nd season of mushrooming, so they may be around.

    >>What elevation are you finding them at?
    The chants are just starting to come in. 9500 -10000 ft, spruce forest, with medium sized rocks in the soil.

    So from what I've now read, I should be able to find B. barrowsii. It prefers ponderosa while B. edulis prefers spruce. Hence B. barrowsii will be at lower altitude. Does this jive with your experience, MycoRob?

    Just walked a couple miles around a ponderosa forest and meadow. I saw lots of LBMs, lots of little puffballs, and a few russula, but no B. barrowsii. >:(

    Puffballs are nothing to write home about, but I like to pickle them; they turn out pretty good.

    I know I'm a bit late to reply, but here is my info. I found Some B. Barrowsii under ponderosas in southern colorado around 8000ft in 2006. They were quite a rare in my experiences since i've searched that elevation and habitat quite a bit in the past with no luck.

    Also found some Chants the same year in early Sept just over 9000ft in mixed aspens and conifers...

    Similar to a B.aestivalis, european species, but the mushroom in the first two picture are B.barrowsii.
