Collection location: Kings Co., New Brunswick, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Jamie Smith (nb mushrooms)

No specimen available

I have 2 acres behind my house that had many of these last summer. The water table is fairly close to the rocky surface where mostly Balsam fir, Spruce, and White birch have full crown closure. Many different types of mosses are present. The flesh of these mushrooms is not typical of others I have found. I believe mould has infested the mushrooms in this area, not all of them, but all of one type . Chantrelles and Boletes are mixed through out the same area. Slugs like these a lot. I have looked through a few books but do not feel confident about and ID. I would love to know if these are edible.

I appreciate your help with ID.
