Going to add these photos to my (wild edible mushroom) page eventually, so I thought some folks may like to see what is currently appearing in one of our Maritime forest. Above we see a few Boletus subglabripes which is our most common summer Boletus, it is not very large though it makes up for this in its great numbers in our typical mixed woods of poplar, red maple, birch and conifers.

Here is drier load of B subglabripes from yesterday

Gypsy mushrooms are also starting to show, as you can see in moss only the cap is usually visible.

Here is a look at some young Gypsy mushroom (Cortinarius caperatus) lifted from the moss and these are at a good edible stage.

Looking at these 2 orange colored Lactarius mushrooms it appears their orange latex on their gills is not going to stain green or burgundy so they must be Lactarius thyinos which is a good edible mushroom. This is a mushroom I do not find many of though I may receive a surprise some day.

Surprises are very common in our forest as it is rare a day when I am not , example – I wasn’t expecting to find any Boletus caerulescens an other choice edible in a mossy conifer woods of pine and balsam fir yesterday when I usually only notice this mushroom under Norway Spruce, but here they are. ciao
