Australian chromapes . . .

In 1993, C.B. Wolfe and Neale Bougher published a paper in Australian Systematic Botany 6: 187-213, that specifically deals with the “chromapes group” in Australia (& elsewhere). 4 new species were described from Australia, and 4 additional species were described from the Northern Hemisphere.
This group belongs neither in Tylopilus nor in Leccinum. See Tylopilus queenslandianus, Observation #20695.

I found in Katoomba. That I also named Tylopilus chromapes and as I know chromapes from NC I think it actually is the same species, maybe introduced? It can be a close relate tho. But when I think that Cyptotrama asprata is also growing in Oz so why not chromapes? I think there are some relics between South America (with species ranging up to North America) and Australia (Gondwana?)
