I think it’s perfectly appropriate for you to contact Dr. Halling (he is on MO, user id = royh) to find out if he would be interested in a collection of this species.

was more on pores after being cut, than on the flesh from handling.

I come across these often at this time of year and I’ll make a collection in case someone wants to study further.

Thank you…

…for the info.
From the other observation it appears that bluing is not prominent at all.
I don’t know how common or rare this bolete is, but perhaps it would be worthwhile to save a specimen. Roy Halling of the NYBG has been doing a lot of taxonomy work on Aussie boletes…

Blue bruising was seen once cut in half but unfortunately no pictures of that for this specimen. I do have a picture of bruising from a previous observation, which can be seen in this link. http://mushroomobserver.org/165001?q=2Z3Tj

I don’t know much at all about edibility of boletes here in Australia either.

Nice find

Did it blue on bruising?
Is anything known about the edibility of red-pored boletes from Australia?
