has a good description for macro features. Try surfing to http://sweetgum.nybg.org/boletineae/index.php and accessing the Taxonomy link or the Specimen link. I also would like to thank Paul for asking me (and another boletologist) what I (we) thought.
No doubt there is a good description in Bessette et al. as well.

Thanks Paul Kirk!

This from our friend at Index fungorum..,

Tylopilus balloui is considered to be the correct name – note the corrected spelling.

In haste,

Whats the deal with the name

Fungorum calls it Rubinoboletus ballouii (Peck) Heinemann and Rammeloo http://www.speciesfungorum.org/...

we here on Mushroom Observer call it Tylopilus balloui (with no author)
and depreciate Tylopilus ballouii (with an author)http://mushroomobserver.org/name/show_name/1112?q=4I5Z

Wow, these are great! I have only seen one, kind of beat up specimen of this species and it was still impressive. Really nice find!

Thanks Noah!

That’s the brightest orange I have ever seen on a bolete! I wonder if it could be Gyroporus castaneus (with extreme colours)?
