because folks (T. & J. vdH) in NSW kindly brought me to Ian’s neck of the woods (after Fungimap 8 conference). The KK will show me the site – it’s hard to believe that it gets any better than this!

Wow, indeed!!!

This must have been the most misleading bolete for many boletologists on MO! Boletellus would have been my last guess, too, judging by the macro-morphology only. But then what do I really know about boletes from the island continent? That’s right, I know absolutely nothing! :-)
Without the bluing, the species looks like a cross-breed between North American B. hortonii, B. rubropunctus, and has a leccinum/hemileccinum character to it. It would be interesting to find out the story its genes tell…

Not really

Wow images of mine, but it’s definitely a Wow bolete from Ian. My grad student, Naveed (working on Gyroporus), saw Ian’s pics and said that no way does that bolete have the ‘look and feel’ of a Boletellus. Way to go, Ian, another beauty.

cool macro. even cooler micro!

please put Roy’s photos up here, Ian, so we all can see ’em!

I made a squash mount in KOH of the hymenophore and saw spores with longitudinal ribs. OK, my forceps and razor are contaminated. Had a go at it with fresh, clean tools – spores are longitudinally ribbed! The pileipellis is composed of erect, short, barrel-shaped cells (the wrinkled cap would hint at that). Am taking pics of micro features and will send those to you, Ian. This material is a bit on the young side, but Wow! It would be really great if you found more of this thing. I do not know of a Boletellus with intense staining and a wrinkled cap.

Appearance very similar to B. hortonii…

except for the prominent bluish bruising on the cut context.

I suppose it makes little sense to propose “Boletus”, as this genus is currently being split apart into newly named genera.

that wrinkled cap …

reminds me of Boletus hortonii on the east coast of NA. But it is surely NOT that species in OZ.

yet another cool find, Ian.
