    What Kind is this and is it edible?

    Was metal detecting a woods today. Got 11 wheats, 1 Indian and a Buffalo Nickle. Stumbled across about 20 of these tho and was just wondering what they are. Southern Michigan woods if that helps. Thanks. Jgas. Click image for larger version.

    Little bit of butter and maple syrup and they would look like pancakes.

    I took a Dept of Ag graduate class on mushroom identification about 35 years ago and i only eat 'shrooms when I am 100% certain of their identity. I am not 100% certain about this one but believe it belongs to the non-edible group called "Boletes". This one looks like it could be one of the species in the genus Fuscoboletinus. A friend of mine has a little terrier like Toto and he has eaten these a couple of times and had to see the Vet as a result.

    The instructor of the class I took highly recommended the book Mushrooms of North America by Orson Miller, Jr. You should easily find a used copy on ebay or amazon for a couple of bucks.

    These days, we only eat easily identified morels, meadow mushrooms and puffballs. The puffballs can be the size of a softball and can make a nice lunch just by themselves, sliced and pan-fried. Pick them as soon as you see them because the bugs burrow into them pretty quickly.

    Thanks for the replies. I’m not gonna eat these tho. I will wait for Hen of the Woods or buttons or spring morels. And yes I did finally find my way out of the woods. Lol. Thanks again. Jgas.

    Bake them into cookies and feed them to someone you don't like. Wait three days and if they are still walking eat them!

    That’s a couple of big boletes! Like Megladon says...only 100% certainty to actually eat. They look a bit like bicolor boletes but need to check spore prints and color of bruising. There sure have been lots of cool mushrooms in our woods lately with this heat and humidity. I could only identify and eat the black trumpets! Bees have been out and I got two stings. Yikes..I forgot how painful bee stings can be.
