Cracked-cap boletus (Boletus chrysenteron) is really common.  It is edible, best after drying and rehydrating.  I am a big fan of them, as well as the close relative Zeller's boletus (Boletus zelleri).

Here is a good page of info on both:

Have you ever heard of red capped or maybe cracked boletus? I know they are edible , I was just wondering if anyone has experienced eating them and if they are tasty or not. I found a bunch growing on my property. They were past eating, but next year I am going to check them out. Are all boletus edible?

Filip, I'll be cycling past it on the way (back and forth) to school. Perhaps we can work something out when school starts.

I have been meaning to join that outing one of these times.  Perhaps I can make this time around.  I am sure I can learn some more from him.  Wonder if I can sign up over the phone?

The gentleman that runs the Sultan pharmacy (just across the bridge, going West, on the right) is taking a group of people out (first Saturday of October) to hunt for mushrooms. There's a sign-up sheet in the store (the cost is $25,- for a full day, with lunch, fungi of course ;)). I'm going and have room in my car for about 2 more people.
