Thanks Roy, I thought you may have some thoughts on this.
I’ll look at those papers and will try to make new collections this season for further study.
Michael & Deb: A paper was published by Josef Šutara in 2008: Xerocomus s.l. in the light of the present state of knowledge. Czech Mycol. 60(1):29-62. In that paper, he describes anatomical features that distinguish Xerocomus s. str. from Xerocomellus gen. nov., Phylloporus, Hemileccinum gen. nov., and Pseudoboletus. Currently, published DNA sequence data lend support to the recognition of those genera. Based solely on the appearance of B. leptospermi in Michael’s images, I would GUESS it might be a Xerocomellus (comparable in looks to Xerocomellus zelleri, X. chrysenteron).
Hi Debbie, yes I suspect it probably belongs in Xerocomus but I don’t really know what taxonomic characteristics are used to separate the two genera, if anyone can comment on this I would be interested and next time I see it I’ll make a collection and have a closer look.
I think my other observation shows the macroscopic characteristics a bit better.
a Xerocomellus or Xerocomus?
Thanks Michael, I really was wondering what this species looked like, just on the possibility it might show up in SE Qld.
