Observation 45206: Boletellus emodensis (Berk.) Singer
When: 2010-03-25
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: See features noted above. One of the unusual features I have seen for Boletellus (and some other boletes) in Queensland is that the basidiomes often appear to be arising from dead wood or are attached to bark at the base of living trees. Rather than being true wood rotters, I’m betting that more moisture is available at these microsites.

Specimens in BRI & NY (REH9270).
