Pretty 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.

Don't tempt me! Do they look like this...instead of having gills like a normal mushroom it's more like a tight-grained sponge under the cap?

I couldn't begin to tell good from bad, I stay away from them all.

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.

Not a King Bolete from what the stem looks like. What color does the spongy underside bruise to?

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!

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.
