From the looks of those gills I'd say "HELL NO" I don't trust anything with a sponge.

LOL! :laugh:

All Boletus have pores instead of gills... including Boletus eduils, which is one of the highest ranked gourmet mushrooms on the planet!!

Anyways, thanks for that picture. Did it say anything about it being edible?

Its funny, it is like a cross between an Amanita magniverrucata and a Boletus rubripes.

Boletes as a group are among the safest mushrooms for beginners, because there are a couple simple rules which will rule out all the poisonous species.

Avoid boletes which bruise blue, have red or orange tubes or tube mouths, or both. Also avoid any which are bitter or peppery tasting.

That's it!

You will be eliminating some species which are actually edible, but if you follow those rules you will not eat a poisonous bolete.

If the tubes are getting mushy you should probably peel them off and leave them in the forest - they're producing the spores, so leave them to help make more boletes. Some boletes have fairly slimy caps - it's usually a good idea to remove the slime, too. Try wiping the cap on a paper towel to remove the slime. Leaving the mushy tubes or the slime on the cap sometimes causes mild diarrhea in some people.

One last thing - how to tell a bolete from a polypore. The easiest way is to try and peel the tubes from under the cap. The tubes on a bolete can be peeled off, usually fairly easily. You will not be able to peel the tubes from a polypore.

As angryshroom mentioned, Boletus edulis is consistently ranked among the best edible mushrooms in the world. There are several species of bolete which are very good eating. Very much worth hunting for.

Hermes_br asked about seeing mushrooms the size of those Macrocybe titans. I have found Boletus edulis a couple times which were as big as the specimens in that photograph. Unfortunately, every time I find one anywhere near that size the maggots have gotten to it awhile ago. So the boletes I found that were that size were hollowed out, rotting shells. When I touched the cap, the mushroom collapsed into a mass of rotting flesh and writhing maggots. Yuck.

Happy mushrooming!

thanks, ToxicMan .
So as Raadt asked , does anyone know how long does a specie like that take to arrive at full maturation?

another odd mushrooms:
"A conspicuous terrestrial parasite of beetle larvae. Widely distributed in the Americas from the eastern United States south to Ecuador. Known for certainty from Guanacaste Province in Costa Rica. The specimens illustrated were found in a Quercus forest near Popayan, Colombia"


Cordyceps melolonthae

While some species of Cordyceps are psychoactive this is not one of them.



two species of Cordyceps are very important to the Indians of Nevado de Toluca region in Mexico, where they are used together with Psilocybe muliercula, called "hombrecitos" (little men) and "mujercitas" (little women), respectively. It is important to observe that the genus Cordyceps is taxonomically closely related to Claviceps purpurea, the famous ergot that produces certain types of hallucinations (Ramsbottom, 1964; Schultes & Hofmann, 1973, 1979; Wasson et al., 1978). The species of Cordyceps are used in Mexico in special nocturnal ceremonies, where they are eaten with Psilocybe muliercula or ar alone. In the middle of the room of where the ceremony is held, a specimen of Elaphomyces (e.g. E. granulatus Fr., E. muricatus Fr. or E. reticulatus Vitt.), the host of those Cordyceps, is placed on the alter as a "director" of the ceremony (Guzm?n, 1959, 1994a, b, 1997). It is interesting to observe, that these species of Elaphomyces are used by the Trique Indians from Alta Mixteca (Oaxaca, Mexico) as a help in the cicatrization of the wounds or to "rejuvenecer el organismo" (rejuvenate the organism) (Trappe et al. 1979; Guzm?n, 1994a, b).

Cordyceps capitata,
C. ophioglossoides

No he did not but they are related and from a country near where the psychoactive species are common so it is possible that they too could be.
