And once again T. balloui-group. I found one of this group in North Carolina too but it was sterile.
Not sure about this now. Will have to look it up again.

Thanks again!

look a bit different, but all in all, they are very reminiscent of the Tylopilus balloui group. Whether or not B. scarlatinus is a name to apply to one of these in Oz just hasn’t been under my radar (yet).

Based on what I have seen, the T. balloui group is very common and widespread in the east of Australia. The adnate hymenophore appears routine, and a pleasant odor. Cap colors vary from white to yellow to orange to red, to gray to brown to olive. There is a viscid yellow one described by Watling (& Li? or Hilton?) as Rubinoboletus phaseolisporus from Western Australia. Preliminary gene inferences place it as a true Tylop with T. felleus. One of the distinctive microscopic features are the “bean-shaped” to ovoid spores. Some have placed these ballouioids in Chalciporus or Gyroporus – incorrectly in my judgement, even without molecules.
