I could find three names for this mushroom:



Two others being 'cep' and 'porcini'. 'Penny bun' looks like the original English name but I couldn't find it in the American Heritage.

Which is most widely used in Britain? What about the American version?

That mushroom can be known by several common names Penny Bun is one, but on menus in restaurants you may also see it called a Porcini or a Cep.
There will also be regional names that I do not know, the people of Norfolk may have a different name that the people of Cumbria.

The only standard name you can really use in its scientific name Boletus edulis.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

Sarriesfan: We in the US would call this a "porcini" as well. Very popular these days in cuisine cooking, but also popular in our supermarkets. For mushrooms, we in the US tend to use the European names for mushrooms (porini, crimini, etc) likely because of their popularization first through cuisine cooking. Tasty mushroom, by the way.

We use the French 'champignon' for that but this is a cultivated mushroom not found in the wild. All the other kinds have their old Russian names. I expected the same in the English language.

Thanks to both of you!

I'm afraid that I just go to the shop and buy mushrooms.

Herkkutatti, "delicious boletus" ;-)

The most delicious mushroom you can find here.


In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

After ordinary, everyday white mushrooms, portobello, shiitake, and oyster mushrooms are the most common in groceries here.
