Giant bolete row

Phlebopus marginatus


This amusing line of bolete mushrooms were just young ones. There were 10 all up in a perfect line (following the artificial contour of a roadside ditch) Each about 300mm wide and all in good condition except for one which had suffered some larvae damage (beetle, or fly love this species)


Outer suburban roadside ditch.


These can grow to 900mm wide under the right conditions but usually they get eaten by grubs before that stage... here's a big one I found last year
