    I have these mushrooms starting to grow around my Larch trees and some other pines, I have done some searches and think they may be either Larch Bolete or Bay Bolete. Can some one confirm this or tell me other wise, I know that Bolete are edible and a good for dried mushrooms.

    My guess is a larch bolete too. I have eaten birch boletes and scaber stalks and found them to have very little flavour and a texture that left a lot to be desired.

    Not every bolete is a king bolete....sigh!
