Description:

I found this chap back in September growing amongst beech trees. This was the only one and i was taken by the blue tone to the cap (looks like bruising), netting on the stripe and how sturdy (for want of a better word) it felt. I wonder if there was a secondary fungus involved?

Boletellus!, really?

this IS Tylopilus felleus the pores have pink tinge and I wouldnt really call the 'bluing' visible as proper colour change usually expected with certain Boletes, probably early stages of decay.

I've been away for a little bit - thank you for the ID! I agree with Bitter Bolete - a new one for me. I must make sure i double check before posting. I hadn't heard of Boletellus as a genus either but still managed to post it!
