is based on a taxon from Europe: R. rubinus I believe. The concept of the genus has been badly extrapolated to include just about any taxon with short spores - like Tylopilus balloui etc. which is NOT and molecules have shown balloui is a Tylop. See a paper by Osmundson & Halling in Mycotaxon late last year.
I think I’ve seen this in So Qld and still awaits placement in the Boletineae.

You can call it Chalciporus … e.g. Chalciporus amarellus is also called Rubinoboletus pseudorubinus. Differs from Chalciporus in roundish spores. I am not sure if in the tropics the definition is different. In Africa have been described loads of em from Heinemann/Ramelloo in the Sixties.
I want to stress out that it is just a guess or a hint here and no determination up to date has been achieved.

I never heard that genus of bolete, how do you distinguish it from other (especially leccinum?)
