Probably best to contact your extension service through the university
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

It has pores instead of gills, right? Looks like some sort of bolete

SamVT: Hello from Nova Scotia. From the picture, I am quite certain that instead of gills under the hood, it has a sponge. That puts it in the category of
"Boletus"! Almost all Boletus are edible, (there are a couple of poisonous ones, but I have never seen them on the East Coast),but here is the key for taste: Before you take the spongy material out, because one just cooks the hoods/caps with this species, just draw a tool of some type through it, and if it shows blue quite quickly, it is not the preferred type. Some books claim it may have a very mild hallucinatory effect (not like "Magic Mushrooms")! I have eaten all kinds including those that show blue, and I did not notice any difference. Could have been the Chardonnay or Rum! LOL. However, there is another really choice Boletus: Boletus Edulis! Google it. Exceptional! Cheers! NOTE: Usually where you find Boletus, particularly in coastal regions, there is a great chance of finding Chanterelles. Absolutely a gourmet, nutty flavoured mushroom. Google it as well! Bright gold coloured!
