Suillus Bovinus ?

Hi everyone,

We found these and reckon they are Suillus Bovinus. They were growing around pine trees and ferns and had a glooey slimy cap. If we're right, then according to Roger's Mushrooms, they're edible. Has anyone cooked / tasted Suillus Bovinus before ? Thanks !


I've tried them, not that good IIRC and often full of maggots!

I agree with your id, but never ate them. Aren't they a bit mushy?

They are edible and a guy I know had pickled them - they were OK at best. I don't think they are very good to eat although I know some people who think they are delicious Confused

Average when fresh, but if you slice it and dry it it becomes really rather nice.
