Recognized by sight: Looks like someone dropped it. It smelled delicious. It’s weird that the cap looks cracked, but I still think it’s a B. edulis.

Recognized by sight: Under birch (I guess they didn’t carry it a long way before dropping), early in the season.

Used references: B.P. Vassilkov, 1966. It is the form said to grow from May to June and have a cracked cap. But it should grow in conifer forests. The closest Picea forest is a few kilometers away from where I found this.

I have often found our local edulis types (Pennsylvania, USA) with the cracked caps. Usually, this has been during a weather pattern which features cold nights.
