October Mushroom Week, Day five: Cracked-cap Bolete

Boletus chrysenteron, the cracked-cap bolete, is not poisonous. But it is slimy and unappetizing when cooked. A troop of these grow along the path from the driveway to the yurt.

Their cracked surface and yellow tubes distinguish this from other boletes. The spores are a brilliant greenish yellow. The cracked-cap is an interesting little fellow.
