Thanks to April for the ID, though apparently "bloxamii" is a misspelling of "bloxami." I wonder how we'll resolve this...

Pretty much 100% positive this is the Butter Bolete (Boletus appendiculatus), based on the blue-staining, yellow tubes and stalk, nut-brown cap, and un-bitter taste. We'll see how it cooks up.

Description

This, ladies and gentlemen, is my very first porcini. I'd heard they were blooming in Salt Point last weekend, so I figured I better get up there before they were gone. Lo and behold, I actually found some of these legendary mushrooms. These are some of the most prized mushrooms by collectors and chefs, and for good reason: they are delicious. They also have a billion names (king bolete, cepe) and there ain't nothing wrong with that.

Seriously, growing right there. This was later in the day when I figured I was satisfied and fondly thinking of my warm, dry car, but when things like this just jump at you, well...

Sort of got there. Forgot to change my f-stop for more DoF, though. D'oh.

Saw these plants growing last time I was in SPSP, and this time I got to see them flowering. Pretty little things.
