chestnut to dark brown, sometimes with brick-red or ochre tinges; almost spherical in young specimens before broadening and flattening out. It is at first downy, becoming smooth and polished, somewhat sticky when damp. Flesh is white or lemon-yellow. Where cut, it becomes faintly blue. Pores
are initially cream to pale yellow, but become greenish yellow or olive with age. Stem

Boletus edulis has a barrel-shaped stem with white net patterning.
