Gilled bolete

Phylloporus rhodoxanthus


A brown convex cap of about 8 cm dia. Very pronounced yellow gills.


Spotted in a mixed forest at the Garvan Woodland Gardens.


The mushrooms are edible, and considered good by some. The flavor has been described as "tender and nutty", and drying the fruit bodies first enhances the flavor. Suitable culinary uses include sauteing, adding to sauces or stuffings, or raw as a colorful garnish. They are used to make mushroom dyes of beige, greenish beige, or gold colors, depending on the mordant used.
