Boletus curtisii

Common Name: No Common Name

Synonyms: Pulveroboletus curtisii

Substrate: Ground

Location: Hardwood Forests

Spore Color: Olive-brown

Pore Surface: Whiteish to yellow to dull yellow

Comments: 

This is a fairly stunning yellow bolete. There are several things that make this unique. The first is that both the stem and cap are often fairly slimy. It sometimes makes it hard to pick. If you do pick it, when you flip it over to look at the pore surface, you will see that the margin rolls back up in towards the pore surface. 

This mushroom can stain your fingers yellow. (Non-toxic). Said to be edible, but not appealing.
