It is known as dotted stem bolete.
In Catalan: Mataparent de peu vermell
In Basque : Orrementi-onio
It has a dark brown cap, usually with red or olive sparkles. It is convex, and tomentous, from 5 to 20 cm when dried. It has yellow tubes with small yellow pores which turn blue when touched.
Robust pedicel, generally wide on its base and fleshy, with a yellow base that gets tomentous from its red part upwards.
It has a compact yolk coloured flesh that goes green at first when being cut and completely blue later. It is edible but it must be thoroughly cooked.
They prefer forests with broad-leaved trees and an acidic humus and are commonly found in coniferous forests. It is the easiest to spot among the boletus that go bluish.
It is a boletus fungus. It has got many pores beneath its cap, which are the tube orifices. This is a characteristic typical of boletus since they do not have gills but a spongy mass under their cap, whose colour may get different kinds of yellow or even light greens.
