Observation 44011: Boletus rex-veris Arora & Simonini
When: 2010-04-06
Collection location: Idaho, USA [Click for map]
No herbarium specimen

Notes: We find these mushrooms every year in the spring, around Mother’s Day. They look like giant hamburger buns and taste like almonds, pecans, and something even better mixed…our favorite wild mushrooms. We’ve been finding them for over 12 years now, and one year, we found about 25 pounds. Usually it’s about three to ten pounds. They grow near fir trees with partial sunlight and partial shade, up in the mountains of Idaho near Sandpoint and also the Washington/Idaho border.
