About this book

Boletes are some of the most popular fungi around the world, both because they are often choice edibles and also because of their frequently exotic colours and large size. There are approximately 80 species in Britain and British Boletes aims to provides user-friendly identification keys and descriptions to all the known species along with colour photos of the majority of species.

The 5th edition introduces one new species – Boletus mendax – and removes another B. caucasicus – no longer considered a good species, as well as improving several of the photographs, updating some descriptions, and correcting minor errors.
