No, Ian, I don’t have a name for this bolete. My apology for the confusion.


Thanks for the comments. Do you have a proposed naming. Not sure from your comments. Ta KK

Wrong color

hymenophore for a Zangia, but the pipleipellis is an ixohyphoepithelium, stipe surface and (yes) there is some bright yellow mycelium at the base of the stipe. This latter wasn’t/isn’t so obvious in the images. All points to Zangia but the tubes are not pinkish. Thanks again for sending the specimen.

yesterday, Ian. I’ll have a look and get back here. Thanks!

Naming update.

I will leave this as “Promising” till Roy after receiving and possible ID is complete. Look forward to the ID! kk

Thanks for the email alert, Ian, and thanks for your concern of my whereabouts, Gerhard.
Obviously a bolete, but I have not seen this entity before. The fine pink scabrosities and the deeper reddish-pink pigment(s) in the pileus remotely suggest Australopilus. However, chrome-yellow pigments are lacking on the stipe base, the humenophore is yellow (not vinaceous pink) and there are superficial “veil” fibrils on the pileus surface. The pileus surface proper appears to be rugulose beneath the fibrils, and that would suggest a hymeniform style of arrangement of the p-pellis hyphae (Zangia?). Australopilus has a trichoderm. The macro features are very well-illustrated in the images. Good on ya, Ian! So, I cannot offer a genus name at this point. Having a specimen to study will be a good thing. Nice find, Ian!

Very beautiful bolete!

Where is Roy H these days?
I do not know this one and genus without microscope here is impossible unless you know the species. Could be anything from Boletus to Boletellus.
