Hi

I took this pictures today. Any idea what they are?

1.


2.


3.This boletus change very quickly to blue when bruised. The smell is not very "mushroomy", a bit bitter. Cap size is about 20 cmts. Spore prints are on their way. I will update.

Red berries are either a rowan variant or one of the other Sorbus species I think. Makes a superb jelly and a good wine.

Middle pic is a currant, probably a flowering currant (you know the pink flowered one?). No cullinary interest.

Don't immediately know the boletus, spore prints are less useful for boletus than knowing the habitat. I immediately thought Tylopilus when I saw it, but I can't think of one that stains blue. I'll ponder that one.

You're not put off from it being that by the stem?

For what I can see and you have said (your mention of 'bitter' is interesting) my money is on Boletus calopus.
