Leccinum vulpinum (Leccinum aurantiacum) has an orange—brown cap with overhanging marginal flaps and brown scabers that blacken with age. The base slowly becomes blue-green on cutting and with handling. Unlike the European Leccinum aurantiacum, which grows with hardwoods, Leccinum vulpinum is associated with conifers.
