Boletus Smithii

11 Boletus Smithii

I found about 6 of these mushrooms last week and Oluna Ceska was kind enough to identify them for me. They were growing in a mixed conifer, west facing, sloping forest which was made up largely of western hemlock near the beaches north of Jordan River. There was a lot of rotting wood on the ground. Although Trudell and Ammirati (pg 219) identify the flavour as mild, several of us found this mushroom to be an excellent edible! As you can see from these photographs, my specimens were much pinker in colour than the ones in the Trudell- Ammirati book and by Beug on eflora. If you don’t want to eat yours, please give them to me.
