    The bay bolete (Boletus badius) is a widespread and very common fungus usually associated with conifers but not exclusively so. Appearing from late summer to early winter it is classic boletes in appearance, largish domed cap, brown in colour with a stout stem and yellowish and fleshy underside to the cap.

    It is edible, it has a mild, pleasant taste; nice if you like that sort of thing.
