graveyards that I regularly check when I think the B. edulis is up. One of them features an area that’s got mature red oaks. I should check during mid-summer. B. frostii and L. indigo have eluded me for years!

never found one. But this year will be different. Dave W: Walt’s secret is to check the graveyards for Boletus sp.

is usually with oaks and it is fairly common both in wooded and grassland areas. It is edible with a lemony taste which makes it a good accompaniment to seafood.

not here in the oak woods of NE PA nor in NY state. Maybe we don’t have the necessary species of oak around here?

Your area of Ohio must be a wonderful place to find fungi. Guess you have a lot more old-growth forests than we do in Missouri. I really enjoy seeing your great finds and photos.
