NO MAJOR SPOILERS

The book for the Boletes family took three years to be completed. It is a magnificent work and its quality has been respected with the participation of all the required professionals, translators, revisers and graphic designers. A bank of over 25,000 photographs was taken and sorted solely for the family of boletus. The book is bilingual and references include their Latin names. This is a rare book that covers only the family of boletus. The first edition is limited to 200 copies.

In the past, mycology was taught using a black-and-white identification key, often hand-drawn, that required a microscope to be able to recognize criteria useful in identifying mushrooms. This new visual identification key is logical and has been defined and thought to be used directly in the field with images and enlargements of high qualities. The identification key on the website can be used directly in the field. Enjoy it by picking your boletus!
