Help ID please. Poisonous or edible?

Recommended Posts

With Boletes, staining reactions can be critical for identification.  Did you notice any blue staining after handling the mushroom?  There appears to be a faint blue streak across the pores in the 2nd photo.

Are those trees hemlocks or larch? Could there be a few pines mixed in?

Boletes are almost all mycorrhizal species , meaning the mushrooms are the result of a fungus that associates with particular living trees. 

Interesting. Here's a low confidence tentative guess... Imleria badia. Usually the caps of this species are dry. Was this found soon after rainfall?
