It is found in Europe and in many parts of North America. Appearing under birch trees, usually in mossy woodlands or on wet heathland, this summer and autumn fungus has a distinctive mottled cap. The cap colour ranges from almost white through various mid and dark browns to almost black.
Leccinum variicolor is generally considered to be a good edible mushroom and can be used in recipes that call for Ceps (Boletus edulis); although in both flavour and texture a Cep is superior.
