Description

Common Name: Lilac-Brown Bolete

 Pores chocolate- to purple-brown, & stain dark brown. Cap purple- to gray-brown. Flesh slowly stains purple-, red-, or gray-brown. Well-speckled stem. Used to be considered edible and many have enjoyed, but recent and reliable reports show that several other people have gotten severe GI distress. One of those where you must start small and be cautious about.
