In September last year Peter-Jan Keizer discovered an albino form of the larch bolete fungus on the site of the former Soesterberg military airbase. There, larch boletes had been found before. Then, Mr Keizer saw the at first sight unknown mushroom. After investigation it turned out to be an albino mushroom. Keizer has sometimes previously found albino mushrooms, but these observations remain extremely rare.
