"Kikubana-iguchi" (Boletellus emodensis) belongs to the Strobilomycetaceae family. It is a fungus that is distributed from Honshu south to Shikoku and Kyushu in Japan, Taiwan, China, the Malay Peninsula, Borneo, and New Guinea. It occurs from summer to fall on the forest floor of broadleaf forests and near the roots of trees. The cap is 5 to 10 cm in diameter, and its surface is covered with large wine-red scales that crack as it grows, forming a chrysanthemum-like pattern. A membrane covering the pores of the tube remains around the cap. The stipe is a dark wine color and cylindrical.
