This large mushroom was growing in the woods near the trail on the lower portion of Jackrabbit Mountain in the Nantahala National Forest.
This is possibly a two-colored bolete mushroom - Boletus bicolor - or more likely the similar Boletus pseudosensibilis, recently reclassified as Lanmaoa pseudosensibilis. These are usually found from late June through October on the ground in oak woods throughout much of eastern North America.
Lacking gills, the cap is fleshy with a fertile surface of small porelike openings.
For more on this mushroom, go to the new Wild Florida Photo Lanmaoa pseudosensibilis page.
