Sunny_0ne Posted September 6, 2012 Report Share Posted September 6, 2012 I apologize for the poor quality of these mushrooms. They usually grow in abundance around here, but this was the only one I could find now. I am not sure what they are. They have a lot of resemblances to boletus bicolor with a couple of differences from the descriptions in the book. The pore surface instantly turns dark blue when bruised. The flesh shows a very light bluing near the pores. My confusion is that there is no yellow top to the stalk. The red goes all the way up. Since I have read that boletus bicolor (when correctly identified) makes some people sick, I am doubly reluctant to experiment with eating these. But I would love to know if it is a boletus bicolor that doesn't know it's supposed to have a yellow apex on its stalk or if it's something else.
