Fungi with pores
Boletus and allies
Boletes are related to gilled fungi but produce their spores within pores. The caps are easily separated from the cap tissue. The caps are usually large with a central stem. The flesh of many species stain blue or green or other colours upon being exposed to air through cutting or tearing.
Fungi in this group are mostly leathery or woody, mostly are irregularly shaped and nearly always grow on wood. Their spore surface comprises of pores, like the boletes, but ones which are often small to minute. Some pore surfaces are invisible to the naked eye.
