Oh - thanks a lot for pointing out. Corrected it.
Lars the name "boletus chrysenteron" is now a synonym. the legitimate name is "Xerocomus chrysenteron". ( http://www.mycobank.org/MycoTaxo.aspx?Li... ). here are some other specimen- ( http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/890... ).
The third pic of this less juvenile specimen shows this process:http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/739...
No, the adult specimen will develop a redish stem and the margins of the cap will turn upside, cracking the pores of the lower side to the upside. I first thought it may be a Bronce or Bay Bolete - but the slight furry texture of the cap was missing. I just read that both species are often confused in juvenile state.
ie i red crackling because of the red edges?
