Small specimen - 50cm high. Found under coniferous trees. Flesh turns bright blue on being cut.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Did you notice the colour of the pores? This looks very much like Boletus calopus. Unfortunately this (like B satanus) grows under beech and oak. Were any in the vacinity?
For B satanus the stipe should have a reticulated surface which is yellow at the top.
The pores were yellow. There were beech and oak in the vicinity, although this was under pine trees.
With yellow pores I think you can safely id this as B calopus. B satanus has blood red pores fading to orange.
Thanks for the details
The stipe looks too smooth for B.chrysenteron and the red & yellow colours look too bright and uniform, added to which the cap of B.chrysenteron is normally matt, not shiny.
There should be an "I disagree" option!
There is a "disagree" option - you put up your own suggestion and see if more people agree with you.
Thanks, flaxton. I was reluctant to steal your id., added to which I was wondering why you hadn't done it before!
