Bolete parasitic on Scleroderma

IMG_4387

An unusual find apparently rare but I see them quite a lot. This is a bolete that grows in symbiosis with the Scleroderma was at first thought parasitic but now it is known to be a mutually beneficial relationship. The bolete is considered edible although I have not been tempted as the Scleroderma is poisonous and because its rare of course! This one had been knocked over by deer hence the temptation to try it was close but not close enough!
