Boletes near Michigan City, IN.

I took these pictures of what look like some kind of Bolete at the Indiana Rest Area/Tourist Info Center on I-94 west near Michigan City, IN.
They were growing at the edge of the woods near a shed, under some Beech trees. The cap on the larger one is about 6 or 7 inches in diameter.
(Yes, I know this is not in Michigan, but it is only about 2 miles south of the state line )
These photos were taken yesterday, 6/29/13.

(And had I known this was going to be post 777, I would have went to the nearby Blue Chip Casino...lol )

No, I didn't pull any, just noticed them and took a couple of pics and have no idea what they are. I thought maybe they were Agaricus until I saw the pores under the cap. The mushrooms could be seen from quite a ways away.

I think it is a Black Velvet Bolete, Tylopilus alboater, as it somewhat matches the description in the Audubon Guide. The habitat, range, and color of pores match. The flash on my camera made the cap look lighter than it actually was, (it was overcast and the mushrooms were growing in the shade.)
I thought maybe it was a Dotted-Stalk Suillus but the habitat wasn't right....no conifers nearby.
From what I see, mushrooms that look like this are edible,so if you ate it, you most likely would not be poisoned. It is brownish, and poisonous boletes like Red-Mouth Bolete are reddish.

If there was reticulation on the stem then I'd suspect they were B. edulis. Not pink enough to be bitter boletes from what I can see.

If they are B. edulis would you eat them so close to the highway? Just asking. I am hoping to find some this year. I think I found a B. bicolor last week but only found one so after spore print there really wasn't enough to try.

Probably Tylopilus rubrobrunneus or T. felleus. If it had a distinct reticulation on the stem it's probably T. felleus . Tasting it would tell you if it is Tylopilus too. They're really bitter. The pictures are T.rubrobrunneus I found in Lapeer State Game Area. a few years ago. When they fruit, they can get " huge " like small pillows.

Re: Boletes near Michigan City, IN.

That looks very much like what i am seeing in such large numbers now. Brown cap, brownish pores, bitter taste, big like pillows. The flesh reminds me of fresh puffballs.
