Boletus type fungi

Observed: 21st September 2012 By: mickblunt

Numerous examples of this fungi were present on a windswept mountain ridge. Fruiting bodies ranged from c. 8cm diameter to more than 15cm. Examples shown include one mature specimen and another that has presumably been trampled by red deer. Tubes yellow, flesh creamy. No marked change of flesh colour when cap broken, though one specimen may have had very faint pinkish tinge, but only near the surface.


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