Peppery Bolete by Oniroid Peppery Bolete by Oniroid
Chalciporus piperatus, commonly known as the peppery bolete
the palm tree like stem is not common "i have never seen it before" the pores are the same colour as the cap, This is an edible mushroom but has a hot peppery taste so best used to season.

It sounds good but should they be picked if they are so rare?

In a word No.
I hardly ever see these and i wouldn't pick them, I spent time carefully looking for others,This was the only 1 there "first i had seen in 10yrs", I think it would be fine to cut a small piece from a specimen for a taste id, the piece missing on the cap in this picture would be enough " i didn't remove that piece it was already damaged".
