Summer boletes are surely on their way out (unless there is going to be another crop late August / early September), while russulas and lactaruius rule the ground. I’ve recently been to a few oak/beech woods here in NJ, and it’s the same picture everywhere. I am not crazy about Russulaceae, but L. hygrophoroides is a very good edible. To me it’s just as tasty as chaterelles and black trumpets.
