I found these during a walk today... lots of them... even if these are not specifically the King Bolete I have read you only need to watch for one or two types of Bolete as being deadly... is this correct? (they look like the King though.. these are a few of my smaller guys)
Hase1: Thanks... These are what they look like now that I am looking differently at the features.
MycoRob: Wow.. I see they have been re-examining the Boletus. The old name for Leccinum scaber was Boletus scaber.. This is a really exciting and very detailed art / science.
When reading about Boletus (unaware of Leccinum or Suillus at the time) I read that the vast majority of Boletus were edible, though not always choice, and you really only had to look out for red pores. Does this hold true accross all Boletus, Leccinum, and Suillus? I am wondering if this generalization was made before or after they started moving these from one genus to the other.
