I found this growing right at the base of a scots pine. There were beech trees near by. I don't know about the spores, as I didn't touch it. The cap seemed to have craters on it's surface. It also had a very matt texture, and the stem a velvety texture.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

I think this might be Boletus

I think this might be Boletus calopus but we would need to see more detail of the stem and the cut surface.

Hi, I've added a bit more information on the fungi. I'm affraid I have no more photographs of it.
