I thought I bore Dennis’ touch of nomenclatural humor. really, of all the fungi to not emit a strong odor, durianish or otherwise, a hypogeous one from Malaysia ought to.

Yes, that was the intention of the authors – that it looked like a little durian. I can vouch that it doesn’t have that odor though!

is the etymology of the genus

in the broad sense according to the molecular data. Morphologically, the only thing it has going for it is the blue oxidation reaction, and not a lot else in my opinion. Be sure and read the original paper to get the proper perspective.

I was wondering if I was ever gonna see one of these odd gasteroid boletes, and here it is. I’ve already uploaded to the Wikipedia page. Thanks for posting.
