King Boleta Mushroom

The King Boleta Mushroom (Boletus edulis) is highly edible. King Boleta (Boletus edulis). These specimens were the size of dinner plates.
This highly edible mushroom is very common in coniferous forests. If I were to give it a new name it would be the "Pancake Mushroom". These bad boys are huge. My camera lens cap would be dwarfed in the center of the specimens in this post.

This species, like many mushrooms, have many common names. They include Penny Bun, Porcini, Boleta, and Cepe. These pictures were taken on the Native Lake Trail.

Many specimens were cracked on the top.
