Title: Boleto girallo (Boletus Luteus)

Artist: Unknown

Description: This rare print of Boletus mushrooms is an offset photo reproduction. The mushrooms are drawn with great detail and this print includes a picture sectioning the mushroom vertically to show the inside. The rarity of this print is increased because the mushroom has been reclassified as Suillus Leteus. It has a white stalk with a distinctive ring and an often slimy brown cap, earning it the name Slippery Jack in North America. When dry the cap may be sticky, hence an alternate common name Sticky bun. S. luteus is an edible mushroom that can be found all over the northern hemisphere and often grows in a symbiosis with pine. The slime coating, however, may cause indigestion if not removed.

Size: 10 x 7 inches
