East Texas lurid bolete identification
freshlyminted posted a topic in Identifying MushroomsHi there, I live in Texas and have been seeing a lot of these "porcini" pop up after the rain. Being a huge fan of the way foraged mushrooms taste, I'd be really interested in finding out if these are indeed an edible species. Characteristics Found on lawns and mulch near live oaks and under garden shrubs. The cap is a velvety, suede-brown and the rest of the mushroom is a lurid yellow Most of the specimens I found are relatively young and retain a button-like appearance--uncertain what the mature cap would look like The pores are small and dense, and the concavity of the cap makes it difficult to get a print Netting found toward the top of the stem No redness or color change at the base of the mushroom Upon handling or slicing, the mushroom quickly bruises blue, which fades to an indigo-gray. Marking the cap and the pores underneath produces blue bruising The bruising is darker indigo at the base and the cap, with lighter bruising at the stem After some digging, I suspect it might be Boletus luridellus (examples) or neoboletus pseudosulphureus. But the stem bases are not at all red, so I'd hate to eat them and find out that they are actually the poisonous Boletus huronensis. 👉🏼 Any suggestions for other tests I should do to be confident in my identification? Thanks in advance! Photos

identification Help with crazy looking bolete.
tjardine posted a topic in Identifying MushroomsI know very little about mushroom ID. Trees and plants are my forte. Found this little beauty on a group dog walk (hence no gloves - I washed and sanitised my hands straight after - don’t worry) so did not have my Id book. Not that it would have helped as I’ve been scouring the internet for months. I cannot let this one go. Found: 5th August, mixed woodland but found in a coniferous patch. Near Aboyne, Aberdeenshire. Appearance: earthy brown cap, bright red to bright yellow stipe (this stumped all my google searches) staining bright blue turning dark blue/black. Yellow flesh, again staining blue. Deep blood red pores, yellow towards outer edge. Irridecent **i don’t know the word, forgive me** shiny dried sappy patches on the pores.
Help identifying this
Jed posted a topic in Identifying MushroomsI have found those boletes under fir trees( where I usually find the King boletes). These mushrooms tasted fine . There was a faint yellowish stain to the spores.they definitely looked like bolete but I am not sure which. Any thoughts BTW, we had a lot of rain recently and most of the mushrooms were soft or outright rotten

There smell is not unpleasant and they did not discolor when cut. The largest was about an inch wide any thoughts On what these might be?.
I'm new and so is this shroom I located
Jan Cubbage posted a topic in IntroductionsI am a retired high school teacher of Bio & earth science. It was always a fun and genuine learning experience to take kids into the woods (state park) with their clipboards and blank sheets of paper. During certain times of year we hunted for fungi to sketch, measure and ID and take photos. I found this bolete a couple of weeks ago and want to share. It is always exciting to find something new in the woods. Check this big dude out.. 4 siblings with it. As yet, unable to find a real name of it so I will call it Bolete florisuperus. The base is 4 in. high and the upturned cap is 10.5 inches in diameter.. Bolete like..no gills..white flesh.. no stain when bruised..cap top shiny brown leather -like and the cap was upturned and take note at with an irregular scalloped rim. It's friends left outdoors had a meltdown about 30 hrs. after these photos taken..leaving gooey black insect attracting small masses..the caps turned downward during decomposition. Any one out there seen anything like this before?
Woodswalker posted a topic in Identifying MushroomsHello mushroom experts! i am new to mushroom foraging, and really new to collecting summer mushrooms. Got off work early and took my wife and toddler to a woodlot this afternoon hoping to find some chanterelles. Didn't find a single one, but found two different boletes. I have a hypothesis for one, but no clue about the other. I'm not going to eat them, but just try and learn more about boletes first. Both locations were mature hardwoods, oaks, sweet gum, maple and beech. There was only one specimen at each location, so certainly not enough for a meal! Any ideas on what I found? Thanks a lot for your help! Robert
Boletus Viridiflavus ?
Briar Piper posted a topic in Identifying MushroomsFound in Northeast Texas under younger oaks and a few cedars. Top of a hill, in a drier part of the yard, about a week after heavy rain (ground just drying out again). Found about 20 of them over maybe 50 sq ft, all were scattered, except for 6 or 7 in a row together. Smell is faint/mildly earthy. No distinct taste. The cap has a bit of mushy consistency, the spores were very crunchy. I only tasted a small sample. The spores peel cleanly away from the cap. A bit of bruising on spores of older cap, but not a color change. Younger specimen has white flesh, older is white streaked with red. Waiting on spore print. So far all of my boletes have been red capped, blue staining species. Hope these are edible ! And here is the bottom of a cap, peeled back, and the top of the gills where they were attached to cap. The Spore print appears to be an olive green/brown, but I just have a tiny bit of a print so far.

is this some sort of bolete mushroom?
Missourigirl posted a topic in Identifying MushroomsWhat kind of mushroom is this? It is a rather firm mushroom without gills. It's located in my yard between a few trees, mostly oak. Although it's not right next to one of the trees it is likely to be very near their root system. It's about the size of my hand. I live out in the country at the moment so this isn't some manicured lawn.
WNC ID Help, Cinnabar, Lobster, Bolete ?
sherb posted a topic in Identifying MushroomsHey All - Went looking for black Trumpetts, places where I have seen them small lately. Came up empty, but found these. All were found on USFS Lands, western NC in mixed hardwood forest 4000-5000 feet in elevation, under rhododendrons. The lobsters were found in a steep wash area, trying to bust thru the floor/leaves. 1st up - Cinnabars I think. Next Up - Lobster I think. Evident shellfish smell. And found red crayfish nearby, an obvious sign, ha ha. Lastly 2 photos. Maybe a Bolete, maybe not, as I have not started studying these beyond looking at pictures. Any feedback always appreciated. -Sherb

Gorgeous Red Boletus frostii, I think
Sunny_0ne posted a topic in Identifying MushroomsI found this gorgeous mushroom in our N. GA woods this afternoon. They were growing under mixed hardwoods. I've seen them before, but never really investigated them. I'm still waiting for a spore print, but my tentative ID is that this is probably a Frost's bolete. Although all the descriptions say it stains blue, but this one didn't turn as blue as I expected.
