"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
Not Boletus edulus, but a bolete type mushroom. B. edulis would have a reticulated stem.
Thank you, Ken. I've amended the text accordingly.
it looks like the shiny stuff may be some kind of liquid, or slime? i see the edges as being dry, and the slime covering the middle?i am not sure that i would pick that one; hopefully, i would have found boletes that i know are safe and edible.I-)
