Mushroom Hunt: Larch Bolete.

From Charly, who notes: Edible and in my opinion good, but it has the disadvantage that it is a lot of work – the slimy cap skin has to be peeled of because it is sticky and all kinds of stuff are glued to it. It also contains a lot of water and therefore cannot be safely stored and has to be prepared immediately for consumption. It does not have maggots very often, but it is very beloved by slugs. Latin: Suillus grevillei. Click for full size!

    Suillus! Not my favorite due to the slime… but a lovely mushroom.

    When I read the common name I thought this would be Leccinum for sure.
