Medium sized bolete with sticky orange yellow cap which emerged in small troops under chestnut and conifer in rough grass. As photo 3 shows there is a mucous layer concealing the pores as it emerges, but then leaves a ring or layer of mucous remains around the stem. Cap about 7-8cms. Acid sandy soil. Any ideas?


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

Yes. When bruised it turns

Yes. When bruised the cap turns quickly brown - the colour of bruised apple flesh. When cut, the flesh in the cap is primrose yellow, but changes colour quite quickly in the same way.
