That was a really excellent article!

Perhaps the splitting of the boletes has gone too far – I don’t like the trend of making a new genus for each little clade. It is temping to do another analysis and synonymize some of Vizzini’s genera. I support separate genera when there are clear morphological differences so they can easily be separated, however when those are absent I think genera should be circumscribed to be as large as possible while remaining monophyletic.

I have a feeling that each of us, the MO addicts, should read this proclamation:
My printer does not work and I don’t like reading articles of this kind on screen only, but I noticed the name Boletus mentioned there. Mind you, I think that the mushroom proper does not care if it is called Aureoboletus or Boletus s.l.

again, thx. for the housekeeping, Alan.
