Observation 44038: Boletopsis Fayod

When: 2010-04-07

Collection location: Idaho, USA [Click for map]

Who: Suzanne Endres (Suzyann13)

No specimen available

These mushrooms are scarce, but we usually find a few every year at our cabin in the mountains of Idaho. They are short and curvy on the top, have tiny white pores that look almost smooth, dark brown to black on top, no smell. The pores are so small that it is hard to get a close up, but this year I have a new camera, so in the fall, if I find more, I will try for a better photo. We think they are Boletopsis subsquamosa, or Kurotakes. I’ve never found enough to make Japanese pickles out of them, but I am curious to know if these look like the Kurotake mushroom.
