I know … Rhizopogon roseolus is a big group..
It may be some other sp., I think this to be R. roseolus as it is reported from neighbouring state, J&K.
About edibility a local was collecting this from Pine forest and they said they eat it from years moreover it is also considered delicacy in some other areas..
I have also tried it, it really tastes good…
