Penny Bun?

It's not a penny bun, sorry! But the Bay Bolete is just about as tasty. But you really need someone to check properly for you...

I wasn't going to eat it.

Just like to know what it probably is.

Thank you

Some sort of Boletus anyway. 'Suede bolete' sounds much nicer than 'boring brown bolete' which is how one author describes it. I thought it was rather lovely. It did look suede-y.
