Edibility, habitat and observations

Relationship with the surrounding plant environment: symbiotic mushroom. It grows in broad-leaved woods, on calcareous clay soil.
Inedible.It is a fungus with inconstant toxicity, it seems it has been consumed without giving particular disturbances, even if it is not very digestible; other times small quantities have caused serious poisoning.
Remarks:when it shows up with the all pink hat it could be mistaken for the Boletus regius Krombh, perhaps this could have led to consumption.
