Boletus sensibilis

Boletus sensibilis


This is often mistaken for the bicolor bolete. B. sensibilis turns noticeably blue after five seconds or less (see the photo of the cut bolete, taken ten seconds after cutting). Bicolor turns blue much more slowly or not at all. B. sensibilis smells of curry, while bicolor smells mushroomy. Both are eaten, though sensibilis is know to cause gastric upset in some individuals.
