Who: Rowan Puttergill (roboro)

No specimen available

The id on this was pretty difficult. The bolete family is big and I don’t think my guide is extensive enough, however based on colouring and location, this was a best bet.
The mushroom was found beneath an oak tree, where there were a number of oak and beech down a farm lane. Soil type was largely clay.
