It’s time for (yet again) another mushroom appreciation post! It’s been storming like mad here the past couple days, and it’s been raining so hard there’s been some minor flooding and I actually saw a van flip on the highway.. yikes! But the good news is the land is getting the rain it so desperately needs, and we are now blessed with a gorgeous variety of mushrooms in the forests and all over town! Just look at how many there are in that last photo! I’m in mushroom heaven! 🍄😍👌

Suillus?

So I couldn’t quite figure out what this was. I found it on 7/20 while I was hiking, as usual, in a national park in GA. It is obviously a bolete of some sort with decurrent beige pores that bruised brown and a flat cap. It’s spore print was an undiscernable type of brown. I think I let it sit too long and it got too dark. I took a little nibble of it and it was terrible, kind of peppery and acidic. I think its of the Suillus genus. Since I couldn’t ID it 100%, I am uploading some good macro mushie porn for you.. And when I say, “mushie porn,” I do not mean BBW. 

This pic below is my fave!

It was also, for some reason, hollow! There were no bugs in it at all though.

Feel free to respond to this post as to what you possibly believe it to be!
