A. bitorquis is edible and good. I did eat it several times. Sometimes
however old specimens are quite maggotty. And above all: You should be sure
to have  really got a. bitorquis and not a. xanthodermus: a. xanthodermus
is similar to a. bitorquis, but a. xanthodermus is "yellowshing" when you
cut it with a knife.
