  • Leccinum versipelle: the orange birch bolete

    The orange birch bolete (Leccinum versipelle) is an orange coloured fungus, found near birch trees and is a member of the boletes family so I guess the name is a pretty fair description of it! Usually a solitary species, found in late summer and autumn and is quite common. The orange cap is quite distinctive and once seen you will probably remember it.

    It is edible; want to try it?
