Any luck (or hints) indentifying this species? Also known as Bay Bolete. I've found numerous mushrooms that seem to fit the description, except for cap size. Some are 10-15" across. And they all stain blue when handled/cut. Sorry I can't provide any pictures. Any help is appreciated.

You should always read the uppermost posts by the admins/moderators.
You would have read this:

II. Accurate mushroom descriptions

It is critical that you describe mushrooms fully and accurately in order to get a proper identification.

A good picture of the mushrooms is invaluable, but not required.
Along with the pictures YOU ARE REQUIRED to provide the following data:

* Habitat (where [woods, pasture, state,province,country, altitude] and what [soil, dung, wood (dead, living, what kind of wood?)] does it grow on)
* Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc)
* Characteristics of the stem (length, diameter, color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc)
* Characteristics of the cap (diameter,color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc)
* Spore print color (very important!)
* Color that the mushroom bruises
* Scent of the mushroom
* Anything else you might find important

For more detailed guidelines for describing your finds, please view this document.

For an explanation of mycological terms please refer to this document .


So, post the details and someone may be able to help you. (I suggest you read the top posts of ALL sub forums you frequent.

Sorry, dood!! Thought some folks would be familiar with the species already.
So here it is....

Found in mixed forest, on ground. Cap: 3-15+" brownish. hemispherical. flesh white. sticky when wet, otherwise dry. quickly bruises dark(cap)/blue(flesh). Pores: yellow. 1/2-3/4" long. also bruising blue upon handling. Stalk: reddish/brown. solid. bruses dark when handled. spore print olive-brown. odor: earthy/mushroomy. pleasant.

Does that help you out any???

mm all I know is that the thumbrule for King Bolete hunters is NOT to eat or even pick the ones that stain blue. It's kinda cool though, when you break it the pale white flesh turns to blue within seconds. And usually the meat is greenish blue.
I found a Boletus luridiformis yesterday, which has a clear red color on the stalk. And the flesh turn blue when handled. The cap is kinda brown/greenish and turns dark blue when handled.
The cap color on the Bay bolete is more brown, and it does resemble king bolete in many ways, but the flesh (as mentioned before) is greenish.

Not sure if that was the answer you were looking for though. Hope so!

Cheers
