Langley Park fungus
    #3027613 - 08/20/04 10:16 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Today me and my mate Matt went out to Langley park in search of mushrooms. All though we found no psilocybe mushrooms (at least not to our knowledge) we did find a range of interesting fungi. I photographed a lot of them and brought some back to try and take spore prints.

This is my favourite mushroom that I found. It looks cool and spongey underneath.



I think it might be a Suillus (maybe Suillus granulatus) but I'm not sure coz I'm new to this mycology business.

Here are some other mushrooms we found:




And this one was Matt's favourite:

You first fungus could be boletus reticularis, although I notice a slight greenish bruising on the pores and the colour of the stem would be a bit off. The cap of reticularis should be velvety and the pores shouldn't discolour after bruising.
Howeverm, I'm inclined to think that it's a bolete and not a member of the suillus genus, although that could also be very well possible. Could you perhaps provide better pictures of the stem, bruise the spores and make a sporeprint? That could help narrow down the possibilities...

I haven't really checked out your other finds, I'll leave that to my fellow shroomerites :smile:

I just checked with my microscope and the spores are elliptical too.

Nope, still doesn't ring a bell. I'm pretty sure it isn't suillus granulatus as your find appears to have a velvety cap instead of a slimy one and the milking typical of granulatus doesn't appear in your find.

I'm still inclined to think it's a bolete rather than a member of the suillus genus, based on general appearance.

I trust what you're saying. I'm fairly new to this and just thought I'd have a go at trying to find out what it is. I narrowed it down to either a boletus or a suillus.

Here are some pictures of the spores:

Here are the spores from some of the other mushrooms:



Sorry the quality isn't great - my scope is crap and I have no camera attachment.

Langley Park is in Berkshire, England, (UK).

After doing a bit of research, I have concluded that the species is the Bay Boletus - or Boletus Badius. It is edible and apparently common in the UK. I'm going out with my girlfriend's dad to pick some a little bit later.

I'm pretty sure it is edible, but can any one confirm this? If anyone has a difference of opinion I'd be pleased to hear it.


Oh - and fugu, I don't know much about microscopes, but the eyepiece says 10X on it and the lense at the bottom says 20X. It also has a 10X and 5X lense.

I doubt this is boletus badius. The tubes of boletus badius bruise blue heavily, which is something I don't see in your description or photos. If you're new to the ID-ing process and unsure about your ID, don't eat your finds. Only eat mushrooms if you're 100% sure about the species.

Lauryn's dad has eaten them before. If I wasn't fairly positive I wouldn't eat it. I think all boletus mushrooms that don't have red/orange pores and don't bruise blue are edible.
