Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

With wet weather for the second half of June and much of July, the mushroom season here is finally off to a start, with only Megacollybia season having been a dud so far.

These brown-capped boletes were ubiquitous in most of the deciduous-dominated zones (birch, maple, aspen). They look like bread rolls from above. Pores are mid-sized and yellow, fairly regular; stipe yellow and often reddening at the base. 3-4cm wide at maturity and perhaps as high.

This one was in Zone 34.
