Xerocomus parasiticus

ENGLISH NOTE IN THE LOWER PART

Hoy me decidí por esta boletacea que es la única especie de esta familia que parasita otro hongo en su desarrollo, en concreto las Sclerodermas citrinum. No es muy común, asi que me alegra haber dado con ella.

Sinónimos: Boletus parasiticus Bull.: Fr.
Habitat: Norte America, Europa.
Nombres comunes: Boleto parasítico
Observaciones: Inconfundible por ser la única especie parásita dentro de las boletáceas; es de pequeño tamaño, rara vez supera los 4 ó 5 cm de diámetro; sombrero tomentoso, pardo olivaceo o pardo amarillento; poros y carne con tonos amarillentos que no azulean.
Ecología: Fructifica sobre la base de carpóforos de Scleroderma, normalmente en verano o principios de otoño. Puede producir uno o varios ejemplares por Scleroderma parasitado. Aunque su huesped es bastante común en diversos hábitats, este boleto es raro.
Comestibilidad: Mediocre o sin valor.
Esporas: Esporada olivaceo-marrón, con esporas alargadas, 11–21 x 3.5–5µ.

Xerocomus parasiticus

Today I decided to post this boletaceae which is the only specie in this family which parasitates other fungus in its development, particularly the Scleroderma citrinum. It is not very common, so I am happy we have found it.

Syn. Boletus parasiticus (Fr.) Quél. Parasitenröhrling Cèpe parasite
Location: North America, Europe
Edibility: Inedible. Said to be edible but not recommended. Taste and smell not distinctive.
Fungus colour: Grey to beige
Normal size: Less than 5cm
Cap type: Convex to shield shaped. 2–4cm, olivaceous straw-colour to sienna, slightly downy. Flesh pale lemon-yellow, unchanging, flushed rust near stem base. Tubes lemon-yellow to ochraceous or even rust-coloured, adnate to subdecurrent. Pores lemon yellow becoming rust.
Stem type: Lateral, rudimentary or absent. Stem up to 40 x 10mm concolorous with cap often curved around or beneath host, tapering towards base.
Spores: Spore print olivaceous snuff-brown. Spores elongate, 11–21 x 3.5–5µ.
Habitat: Habitat unique, on Scleroderma citrinum, and therefore easily recognized. Season autumn. Rare.

Hi FeCr!

Very interesting post and very interesting subjects. This is what I like most on TN - posts which let us learn many new and interesting things. Very good presentation with 'nice' upper photo and 'scientific' bottom one :-) Excellent work my friends!

Buenos días Felipe y Cristina,
Otra contribución muy bien documentada de este parásito insólito. Detalles, iluminación, foco, punto de vista y collage como siempre: perfectos.
Un saludo, José M.

Hola Felipe y Cristina, Excelente toma (como todas las que subes) de esta especie bastante rara, tengo diapositivas realizadas en Coirós con un ejemplar de Scleroderma con 8 Boletus encima. Precisamente hoy voy a fotografiar una Nictalys parasitando el sombrero de una Rússula del grupo nigricans. Si te interesa mandame un correo. Un cordial saludo

Hi
Very interesting shot with good note. Great idea and fantastic realisation.
Thanks
Krzysztof

How fascinating I never knew about a type of funghi that lives of other funghi.Excellent illustration of this. Lovely colours, great POV and perfect focus. I like the two views.

I love to see your pictures, they are giving me a new interest

Otra interesante composición Felipe con tal vez menos impacto visual, pero con el acostumbrado valor pedagógico para presentar esta inusual especie.
En la foto superior me agrada mucho el POV que muestra parásito y huésped claramente con bellos colores y buena nitidez.
La foto inferior es algo confusa para el que no conoce del tema... aunque la forma de exhibirlo es correcta seguramente.
Un gran saludo... Ricardo

Yes ! You can be happy to find also this original mushroom. You show us interesting species and because of you we can learn a lot ! The 2 images and note are so instructive. Great quality shots.
Congratulations and thanks my clever friend.

Buenos dias Felipe,

It's good to meet this rare specie here. I found this fungus only once in my life (at least a decade ago). Very good photos and note. It used to be said it's edible, but mustn't pick, due to its rarity.

Gracias, saludos, László
