Slug eating the Carpocephala.
It was underwater but only temporarily I think.
My first time finding this granite lover.
Grouped sulphur tuft found along a trail. Yellow-orange convex cap with lighter yellow margin. Greenish gills on hymenium. Bright yellow stipe with rusty brown scales at base. Mild smell, but extremely bitter taste.
These mature Boletus zelleri were found during a drizzely day at Staircase, WA. They are mature and the yellow pores are becoming darker blue due to bruising. It was found among old growth conifers, hemlocks, and hardwoods. The stem is red/ fibrous/ stuffed.
L. laccata was found growing in gravel and for needles with trailing blackberry and strawberry. This was on the edge of the gravel road in Lebar Horse Camp in the Olympic National Forest. Identified by macroscopic features.
