The bolete eater (Hypomyces chrysospermus) is a parasitic ascomycete that grows on boletes, turning them a whitish, golden yellow, or tan color. It is found in Europe and North America, as well as southwest Western Australia. Unlike the related Hypomyces lactifluorum, it is inedible.Hypomyces chrysospermus was first described by French mycologists, brothers Louis Ren and Charles Tulasne in 1860. The specific epithet is derived from the Ancient Greek chryse- "golden," and sperma "seed." Common names include bolete eater, and bolete mould.show more
