Boletus erythropus, I think. Any good? (pics)
    #2960696 - 08/03/04 05:09 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I went to the golf course looking for libs (none yet, still a bit too hot here I think!), and found this. I'm fairly sure it's a boletus erythropus, I'd just like to get your opinions on that... and do you know if it's any good to eat? I know it's "edible," but is it actually nice? Thanks for any help you can give...
(it was found at the base of a little grassy mound about 1m high, at the base of a tree, but I don't know what type of tree! Golf course soil is kinda sandy... flesh lightly bluing when bruised. Immediate bluing when cut in half, slowly fading to a dirty blue/green. Gills bruise dark blue/black)

There were also some mushrooms that reminded me of psilocybes of some sort. Today was just a quick shufti, I'll go back tomorrow with a bag and collect some, and ask if I can't ID them myself...

it looks the part and your descripion fits so far, though i do not know if this species occurs in your area. B. erythropus is a definite possibility.

a few things i'd like to know:

what color is the spore print.

are the red colors on the stipe resultant from small granules present [or red hairs]?

is the stipe reticulate [netted pattern]? if so, do the reticulations extend any further than the imediate stipe apex?


Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
