An abundance of these this year after all the rain last week. This is the largest I've seen, It's about 12" dia........ Anybody know about them.
There are probly 50 like that in the forest around the house.... Come get themPretty sure that one is Boletus/Porcini/King based on where you were, but would need to see the underside to be sure. I've been seeing reports of people finding them down there for the last couple of weeks. These are highly desirable. I almost asked you if you saw any like this when I saw your other mushroom pictures. I would have made a trip down there if I'd known they were there. I found some a little south of there at Rock Creek Lake a couple years ago.
That is what I thought the were ... But I don't do much with them ...Aaarggg, I must have mushroom fever!!! I confused your post with another one earlier this week so my comments were made with me thinking the picture was taken in the Southern Sierra. I'm not at all familiar with Idaho mushrooms, but given what I can see I think my ID still may be correct.
I just need to learn how to take good pictures of fungi and mushrooms. They are so tiny, that it's hard to really focus on them with my camera. Well, I also need to get a macro lens, too.When we've hiked in the Pacific NW and northern MI, I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing different fungi. I look forward to lots more photos from you!
