Bolete Help Please

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Hi,

None of the photos are sharply focussed on the pores, so can't get any detail there.

However, I think they have the general looks of Leccinum holopus - "Ghost Bolete".

(Although that species is primarily found in wet Birch habitat).

Regards,
Mike.
