Very small bolete

Observed: 26th September 2013 By: Steve_VSteve_V’s reputation in Fungi and LichensSteve_V’s reputation in Fungi and Lichens

A really small bolete-type fungus emerging from soil/moss clump on sandy soil in deep shade under broadleaf trees. Small - about the size of my middle fingernail, so maybe 10-12mm across the cap, and perhaps 2-3cms tall but hard to really tell amongst the moss. Pores and 'dusty' cap. Ideas?


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

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

I thought Boletes and allied

I thought Boletes and allied were easy to distinguish - not so!
I have Kibby, Boletes and am still struggling.
Your photos particularly pores and stipe are not clear enough for me to hazard an id unfortunately.
I've come across possibly Suede Bolete (id'd on ispot)which was similar size and cap colour.
Sorry not much help!

The more I know the more I realise I don't know
