I suppose it makes sense…

that, given ongoing molecular research, diversity of genera within the Boletaceae will increase for some time. I’m not very knowledgeable about taxonomic criteria, but I’m guessing that one reason why there have been relatively few genera of boletes is that the spores tend to all look the same.

BRB actually mentions the possibility of a pseudo-reticualte stipe for B. chrysenteroides.

I do not know but eventually the only remaining species in Boletus genus will be those in the edulis group.

Looking at these photos I am thinking this could be Boletellus chrysenteroides.

Oh no!

Yet another genus. Do you know if there may be other Imleria species on the horizon, Walt?

Stipe here looks quite unusual for badius. Looks like a broken/shredded reticulatum.
