Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gyroporus castaneus, or commonly the chestnut bolete' is a small white-pored relation of the Boletus mushrooms. It has a brown cap, and is usually found with oak trees. It differs from the true Boletes in that the spores are a pale straw colour.The species was described initially by the French mycologist Jean Baptiste Francois Pierre Bulliard (1742-1792). Formerly a member of the Paxillaceae family, research now places this mushroom in Gyroporaceae. Gyroporus means 'having round pores', and castaneus is a reference to the chestnut colouration.show more
