lacunosus looks good Ian. In N Qld last year, we found what is very much like A. fusisporus. It is not as dark brown, and while the spores are coarsely ornamented like A. lacunosus, spores of A. fusisporus are shorter and broader. Very distinctive! Yesterday, we found some material that may be the latter in Springbrook Nat’l Park near the border with NSW. Thanks for letting me know.

Attention RH

Ian: This looks like an immature version of what Nigel Fechner & I found on Fraser Island this past 1-12 June ’09. Will post some images of Austroboletus spp. (and others) during the next week. thanks! —Roy
