- Genus 2: Boletus
Tells: Slow, acrid flavor. Pinkish to yellowish buff-brown flesh, usually blues esp. by the tubes. Yellow pores age to copper & stain blackish blue. Bright yellow mycelium.
Other Information: Viscid, variable-colored cap. Chal. piperatus is very similar but its pores do not stain & the flavor is even harsher.
Edibility: Unknown, but doubtful. I’m a chili-head and still find this flavor unpleasant.
