Boletes and what else??
    #2868052 - 07/08/04 10:18 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

These are what I think are some type of bolete VVVV





These were growing on a rotten log almost submerged in sandy soil VVV



These were growing alone under palmetta bushes VVVV



I have no prints as I just got back.All of the above were found growing on forest litter under trees,some type of evergreens and some oaks.

Just wondering if any were edibles or not.

Im unsure about the Boletes.

The ones in the second picture might be Lentinus tigrinus, inedible.

Im unsure about the third picture, looks like a type of Russula.

The first picture appear to be slippery jacks...suillus bovinus..
I'm not positive here's a link.... I've never eaten them
but they are edible and I find them quite a bit...

Your boletes seem to be showing pinkish tubes, which suggests that they are Tylopilus. You need to make a spore print to help determine genus. Also, if you could post a photo showing in detail the surface of the stems, that would help.

One very nice thing about boletes is that they are among the safest and easiest mushrooms for eating. All poisonous species of bolete bruise blue/green, have red or orange tube mouths, or both. If your boletes don't do either, then they aren't poisonous. On the other hand, many species of Tylopilus are so bitter that they are inedible, so you should try tasting a small piece before you spend time cooking them up. To taste, break a small piece (smaller than a fingernail) from the edge of the cap, put it in your mouth, chew for a few seconds (up to a minute), then spit it out. If it's bitter, you'll probably know instantly.

I'm with GG on the others. They look like Lentinus and Russula. Neither is likely to be very good for eating.

Happy mushrooming!

I agree with TM, and not because I'm a yes man!!
I jumped the gun too early in the season.....and I didn't take
into account the pinkish gills.... Tylopilus fit's the bill alot closer...
I thought it close to intermedius sp.. but not enough to give it an ID..
I'll be more conservative from here on out.....Nofindum....
