Unidentified fungi

Observed: 21st September 2010 By: JudithML

Found growing at the foot of privet bushes, these fungi are about 10 cm high, The young ones are a regular mushroom shape, becoming irregular as they grow. Underneath the caps they are yellow and porous. When cut, the pores bleed dark brown and give out an intense, earthy mushroom smell. I tasted a tiny piece about 2mm in size. It tasted intensely mushroomy and rather delicious, but I did not taste more without identification.

The Boletus impolitus is

The Boletus impolitus is quite rare in this country, it could possibly a Parasitic Bolete but this too is also uncommon. There are a number of Boletes that faintly resemble certain characteristics so its is hard to formerly identify.
