Royal Bolete

Boletus regius

The Royal Bolete (Boletus regius) is a large, attractive, edible mushroom found in China, Europe, and North America. The species associates with oaks and conifers.

It is included in the regional Red Lists of several countries, but a global assessment for The IUCN Red List has not yet been made. Only 5 of the more than 70,000 described species of fungi have so far been assessed for The IUCN Red List, therefore additional assessments are urgently required.
