Observation 191804: Boletinellus Murrill
When: 2014-11-29

Notes: Bright yellow close gilled fungi growing in forest soil. Fungi easily removed from habitat and bruised extremely easy. Stipe near gills shows slight light brown colour. I will try and do a spore micrograph, but this fungi looks very similar to two other obs …. 166233 and 167348.


Melzer’s solution Max Mag. Section of gill and cap squashed on slide.

Recognized by sight: those “gills” are rapidly becoming poroid, or perhaps poroid becoming gilled. Reminds me a bit of our Boletinellus meruloides.

Two micrographs added. Seems to be two different spores in images. Section under slide squashed.


Debbie, I have saved the link you provided. Thank-you. I have also printed it and added to my Library for easy reference. I am trying to get time to do some micrographs in the next couple of days. I have another find that Heino Lepp (Canberra Herbarium), is presently looking at, (specimens supplied). It is an unusual truffle like find that I was unable to ID .Incidentally April is on the latter end of my season where I am situated. My finds are usually during Dec-April. Nice to talk. Chow, kk

Hullo Ian!

Good find! Those heavily intervenous “gills” remind me of one of our former Gyrodons here … check out the link that I provided. No idea what you have there in OZ, tho, but I hope to find out more come this April! ;)
