The general appearance of an “over-the-hill” Boletellus ananas gets my attention in Australia!! Boletellus ananas does not occur there. When cut longitudinally, the YELLOW flesh in the pileus is quickly obscured by the BLUE oxidation – it makes the pileus flesh appear white. The stipe flesh is WHITE and oxidizes to a BROWNISH ORANGE. The stipe surface is also WHITE, not RED as in Boletellus emodensis, and is more similar to Boletellus dissiliens.
These entities seem to ‘fruit’ near or on dead wood or stumps, or occasionally living tree bases. Not truly lignicolous, but seems that ample moisture is trapped here.
Herbarium specimens in BRI & NY (REH9276).
