Boletus edulis under aspen
    #3250991 - 10/19/04 11:44 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Aspens line the street I live on and these lovelies are popping up at about 3-5lbs/day.I have myc growing in compost of this variety and will be transplanting it into a sapling aspen hopefully I will transplant these delicious fruits into a potted plant and then into my new yard



I got one button that weighed 1lb and was 3" thick by 8" tall unopened.Vigorous patch hope I can transfer the mycorhyzoidal body into a potted tree.Like I said the myc I took is growing well in composted grass so maybe luck will shine on me.

This doesn't quite look like B. edulis, more like Leccinum quercinum , but I am not sure.

I will move this to Mushroom Hunting, I am sure ToxicMan will be able to tell you more.

I agree with Anno - that's not a Boletus, it's from the genus Leccinum. You can tell by the surface of the stem.

For a more detailed ID we need to know the following:
The color of the surface of the cap when they are young. In particular, we need to know which of the following 4 colors describes them best - whitish, pink, orangish, or red to brown.
The colors the flesh changes to when one is cut in half. Note that it is likely to change to one color then another. We need to know each color.

Happy mushrooming!

You are right guys it is Leccinum.My bad ...should have keyed it out before posting an ID.
the fruiting bodies are large
under aspen
brownish dark cap
sliced flesh shows little to no discoloration even until dryness
Thanx for the correction and ID

Your description sounds closest to Leccinum scabrum, which is listed as an edible species.

Happy mushrooming!
