The king is back, the lobster to and maybe the miller?

15 Sep

Nice to see a King Bolete.

Here is a photo showing the pores on the underside of the cap and also another little bolete relative leaning on the king.

Another king bolete not far away over seeing his domain.

A string of lobster mushroom  far out into the field, usually they will be on the very edge of fields or more commonly in the woods.

These mushrooms I suspect are Clitopilus prunulus (sweetbread or miller mushroom), since I haven’t collected or eaten this one before they will need to be preserved until their identity is verified which means I’ll mail out a few dried specimen soon as matching field characteristics and a pink spore print just aren’t enough to take a chance on, this one has a few dangerous look alikes..  ciao
