I hunted up by Bellingham, and I'm not sure what I found, but I'm pretty sure it's active. I just go ahead and describe it for you. It was growing by itself in the woods next to a tree stump. When in the ground, the stem was a yellowish color, about two inches long. There were also a couple red streaks on the stem. When pinched, it bruised a definate blue/green. The cap about half an inch in diameter. It is brown, and round, not wavy. The cap wasn't that slimy at all. Under the cap is a kind of sponge texture... no gills. Any ideas?

the shroom i found looks a little bit like this boletus, but with a few differences.


The shroom I found has a dark brown cap, has much more yellow in the stem, and the cap's edges were bent a little more downward.

If it had a sponge like surface underneith the cap, it's a bolete. Some bluing boletes are edible, some are poisonous, none are active. You'd be best tossing it out.

hey man.
i had boletus edulis for breakfast this morning, no shit.
lots and lots of boletes are edible.
very few are toxic, and the ones that are have caused only a handful of deaths, many of which are dubious. the red pored species, along with those that have bright orange pores, are to be avoided.
i have eaten many random boletes that bruised blue, that i could not key to a species, only because as a rule they are very safe mushrooms to experiment with.
anyway, i wouldnt eat anything that wasnt absolutely fresh, and most boletes decay rather quickly (they get soft and maggotty)
just be aware that the boletes are there and could be potential food. GOURMET food.
get a guide book.
several suillus, tylopilus, and leccinums are also edible and delicious (all these mushrooms have pores, not gills).
happy hunting.
learn the genus characteristics......
