Observation 202581: Boletellus deceptivus Halling & Fechner

Possibly Boletellus emodensis. I had other images to add to this find but they were not good enough. Fungi found in usual area, about 1 foot (12 inches) above the base. Tree Eucalyptus, possibly Stringy Bark. Good day for finds, disastrous for good images……..Grrr

This species is widespread in eastern Australia. Key features distinguishing it from B. emodensis are the coarser scales on the pileus, white stipe flesh below the apex that stains brownish orange, and a white stipe surface. Nice find Ian. I’m in NSW at the moment.
