Boletes Fungi


Most toadstools have gills from where spores are released but the boletes species have pores instead. This gives a spongey, often yellow, look to the underside of the cap. Quite often the surface of the cap can be cracked. 

The information about this group of species has been organised into reports, charts, maps and photos. Click a pic below to see the detail:
