was about 4" tall. Fortunately, the squirrels did not get to them before me, but a couple were in fact uprooted by deer…
What size are these? And how big do they normally get in the field? Or, like in Europe, do they seldom grow to full size due to ambitious foraging by mammals of all stripes?!
nice found :) I love those :) I was driving hours to find some in PA and they that close to my house :)
Thanks for your compliment. Actually, I found them under Norway spruce, which is preferred by var. edulis; however, phenotypically these look more like var. clavipes (see http://www.cortland.edu/nsf/BOLETES/2785bcla.html). Because of this contradiction, I decided to call this collection just plain BE.
Great pics of a beautiful “King Bolete”. Whether you call this mushroom Boletus edulis, B. edulis complex or B. clavipes this is the classic late season eastern form of the American Boletus edulis. I find this mushroom in Connecticut in the fall under White Pine and Norway Spruce.
