described Austroboletus eburneus from Queensland. Austroboletus niveus has been used for collections of a white species also collected from Australia. The latter was described originally from New Zealand under Nothofagus by Greta Stevenson. It was noted as glutinous viscid, whereas A. eburneus is sticky and has a “suede-like” texture when fresh. On 6 May 2014, I collected A. niveus under Nothofagus on the South Island of NZ, and I noted the lack of glutinosity, but this latter feature developed several hours after collection. After comparison, both morph and DNAs, we’ll have a better idea of differences or lack thereof.
