Observation 181584: Butyriboletus regius (Krombh.) D. Arora & J.L. Frank
When: 2014-09-25
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Nothing shows that it is found in southeast Texas. It grows for about one week a year in my yard. I removed them and discarded them until this year. I researched and was certain it was Boletus Regius. I’ve been eating them for the past week and they’re delicious. There is a giant Oak tree near where they grow. They grow from the grass when we get a lot of rain. I’ve collected several pounds of them each year. This year after discovering that they are edible, I shared them with friends.
The pictures might look very different, but are all the same…just taken at different stages of growth.

That’s my wrist not the stem under the mushroom. This one is about 8" across.

Dark spots are “blue” where it was touched with something.
