chromapes [chrom - (L: pigmented) + pes - (L: foot)] is the defining feature of this mushroom. The common names are "yellow-foot" or "chrome-foot", which is an almost literal translation from the Latin epithet.
This unassuming rosy cap usually sits higher than some other Boletes, with its 'foot' hidden below the forest detris. The pink-cap will fade to light brown with age.
When pulled up, the cream-colored pores and rosy scabers may be the first things noticed if that bright yellow-foot is damaged or broken.
Like many boletes, the color of the mycelium is important and Harrya chromapes is no different, with vivid yellow mycelium extending from the foot into the surrounding substrate.
Harrya isn't as picky as many other boletes and is happy to form mycorrhizal relationships with hardwoods or conifers. These are often found growing alone.
The pore-layer will be deep and the pore surface is usually cream colored but have have pinkish to light brownish hues depending on age.
The stipe ornamentation may range from pseudo-reticulation to large scabers. No special smell or taste is associated with this species.
