Huge mushroom found in the Valle de Genal

The mushroom season has started well in the Serrania de Ronda after the recent rains and two local residents have harvested a huge 1.69 kilo black fungus, Boletus aereus.

The specimen, with a cap measuring 35 centimetres across, was found in an area of chestnut trees in the Valle del Genal. Specimens of one kilo are occasionally found in the area but this one was exceptional.
