The Birch Bolete (Leccinum scabrum) is an edible mushroom in the family Boletaceae, and was formerly classified as Boletus scaber. The birch bolete is widespread in Europe as well as elsewhere in the Northern Hemisphere, occurring only in mycorrhizal association with birch trees. The birch bolete fruits from June to October. Common names include rough-stemmed bolete, scaber stalk, or birch bolete. The pileus is 515 cm (26 in.) wide. At first it is hemi-spherical and later becomes flatter. The skin of the cap is light gray-brown to reddish gray-brown, later often more or less brown, smooth, bald, dry, and rather slimy when damp.
