Bolete Help

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Bolete Help

Post by Bazz » Wed Aug 09, 2017 12:24 pm

I came across a small group of Boletes , this one was about 10 cms across although there was some of larger size (15 cms), growing under Beech, overall greyish appearance with grey pores... little discolouration but turning yellowish on aging....I wondered if anyone as seen anything similar before ? maybe a cep(s) deformed.

I think its rather Boletus reticulatus thatn B. edulis, due to the cap structure.

best regards,
