Are these boletes?
    #2768014 - 06/06/04 03:16 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

My camera has bit the big one and I this new one my wife got doesn't give good images, but here's some I found over at a friends party today:





These have no gills, the large one in the center bruised sort of off-blue green when I cut the stem. All of them are on paper right now to get prints. They were found in mixed pine/fir and light brush, with thick pine needles on the ground. Growing in Eastern Washington. Where the gills should be looks like a honeycomblike pattern in extreme miniature. The caps measure anywhere from 1.5" to 5.5 inches in diameter. When you disect the caps in half the flesh is whitish yellow but turns more orangish in a few minutes after the cut. In the largest one the cap is sort of off-yellow and the sporelike underside is light brown. The rest have brownish caps with white striations and more yellowish brown to orangish brown colored undersides, also with the same odd miniature honeycomb pattern in miniature that seems almost solid with the smaller (or younger) specimens. None of them have a noticeable scent.

Ah yes and when I cut the big one in half it had yellow flesh as well but bruised greenish blue almost immediately.

That looks pretty damn close to the largest one. The others have caps that have brown and white striations.

In a general sense, yes, those are boletes. Boletes are characterized by having tubes instead of gills. They can be distinguished from polypores by noting that most polypores grow from wood and boletes from the ground, and the tubes on boletes can be peeled away from the cap where polypore tubes cannot.

As ivi noted, those are probably Suillus, but an identification to species would require more information. In particular, we need to see the stem in fairly good detail.

Happy mushrooming!
