  • Suillus granulatus: the weeping bolete

    The weeping bolete (Suillus granulatus) is a specialised species of boletes that occurs on acidic soil with pine on heathland and as such is ideally suited to the Wareham Forest and that is where I found this one. Indeed, I have seen them elsewhere in the forest so they are quite widespread. They usually appear in these small groups in the autumn amongst the heather or on more open grassy areas.

    These are edible but 'apt to be purgative'!
