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!
what it appears to be? it does look like a little durian…
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.
