 Remarks:The diagnostic features of this species are the viscid, brownish red to violet brown pileus covered overall with appressed, minute, soft hairs, the finely reticulate, light yellow to greenish yellow stipe occasionally stained with dark red at the base, the intensely cyanescent flesh, the partially discolorous red pores, the broadly clavate or narrowly fusoid-ventricose to ventricose-rostrate caulocystidia, and the habitat in deciduous oak forests. In the combination of the features mentioned above, B. viscidipellis can be apparently referable to the section Luridi Fr. sensu Singer (1986).
Boletus viscidipellis is comparable with Japanese B. pseudoluridus Hongo (Hongo 1985) in the distinctly cyanescent flesh and the entirely reticulate stipe, though it can be distinguished from the latter by having the viscid to subglutinous, hairy pileus, the occasionally discolorous red pores, and the yellow reticulum in the stipe. Boletus sensibilis var. subviscidus A.H. Sm. & Thiers from North America (Smith and Thiers 1971) is somewhat similar to B. viscidipellis in appearance, however it does not correspond to the present species due to a consistently glabrous pileus, lack of conspicuous reticulations on the stipe surface, and not discolorous, yellow pores.
