Okay that's it. It's either me or the books (or a mix of the two), because I can't identify many mushrooms that I find
So, first mushroom. I thought it should be a bolete of some sort because it has pores. The spores are sepia (pink brownish). I cut them in half to see if any bruises might occur but nothing happened. The smell was pleasant, almost sweet. The cap of the biggest of the three mushroom is about 10-15cm large, the stem is a bit longer. It was growing near a tree (don't know which kind yet) one of them cut in half the cap! pores... stem entire mushroom
I have also found another huge mushroom. I can't post pictures right now of it due to the limit. The stem is about 20-25 cm and the cap 20cm. The cap was white and had a small elevation in the middle (like a tit, but the rest of the cap was flat). The gills were dark violet-brown. (also, the stem was that color near the cap)... The stem had a voile (a veil). Spores: light brown It was growing in the grass (in the forest).
Well, at least you know it's a bolete and you're not asking if it's active That makes me happy. I'm not sure about the ediblity on that one. ToxicMan seems to be the authority on boletes, let's see what he says.
