Collection location: Ashridge, Berkhamstead, Hertfordshire, England [Click for map]

Who: Hunx (Mycohunx)

No specimen available

One of the first boletes I ever picked was this type, but it was in the New Forest. Much closer to home this one, I do know that is is edible, but cap colour is much darker, (almost black) than the brown birch bolete.
