Baorangia bicolor

Baorangia bicolor, formerly Boletus bicolor, was thought to differ from the poisonous Boletus sensibilus by lacking a curry smell. Not necessarily, according to Michael Kuo. Boletus sensibilus does have longer tubes, (10 mm + at maturity versus 3-8 mm for bicolor) but B. pallidoroseus (smells like beef bouillon), B. pseudosensibilus, and B. carminipes share the same general color scheme, have short tubes, and are of uncertain edibility. Bottomline: study up before chowing down on red-capped boletes with yellow pores that bruise blue.
