Bay Bolete, Boletus badius (previously known as Xerocomus badius) is an edible species of basidomycete fungus (filamentous fungi composed of hyphae that reproduce sexually) and is a member of the Boletaceae (Bolete) family of mushrooms with a olive-brown spore print. It is widespread in Europe and North America and is the commonest species of the Boletus in Britain. It is typically associated with mixed woodlands and is often found alongside ceps (porcini) mushrooms, with which it is often confused. Typically it fruits from August to November (but is most common in September and October) and can be locally very common. The mushroom is medium sized (growing maximally to about 15cm tall) and the cap is the colour of a horse chestnut, or a bay mare (hence the common name of 'bay bolete', denoting this colour), growing to 15cm in diameter and becomes sticky (but not slimy) when it rains. When young, the cap is almost spherical, but it broadens and flattens out as the fruiting body ages. The pores are clearly visible and angular, typically cream to pale yellow in colour and bruise a deep blue-green. The stem is cylindrical, up to 3cm in diameter and lacks bulbous base. It is often curved, typically yellow-brown in colour and frosted with brown streaks. Rather than gills, this mushroom has tubes on the underside, these are yellow to green in colour, adnate or free free, and are easily pulled from the flesh. The flesh of the bay bolete is firm, pale yellow, and shows a slight bluing on cutting and has a pleasant smell and a mild taste.
