Louisiana Mushrooms
    #8721083 - 08/03/08 09:26 PM (6 years, 4 months ago)

Do these look familiar? Ive looked through all kinds of pictures, but am not 100 percent sure what these could be. Reddish caps, 3-4 inches. one was like 7! Growing under shadded area in mulch and soft damp soil.
Date was August 3rd, and they are growing like crazy around here.
Notice the blue bruising. It turns dark, almost a black color after a while. Any info would be awesome

You've found a nigh-unidentifiable bruising, red-and-yellow bolete. Or several of two different species that happened to be growing close together. Most of the boletes coming up in my area are of this kind, and I haven't been able to ID to species two obviously different types (based on cap shape and the size of pores).

According to the literature, they are likely sickeningly poisonous or mediocre edibles. The main exception is Boletus bicolor, which is a good edible, but I believe that species is supposed to have bright pink-red caps and bright yellow pore surfaces...Your specimens have a variety of red (and perhaps yellow) shades to them, hence they couldn't be called "bicolor."

None of the blue-bruising boletes is known to be psychoactive.
