No, we have not described any ballouioids from Qld or other parts of Australia (yet). You can find access to past publications at: http://www.nybg.org/bsci/res/hall/boletes/publications.html. The rest of that site has moved to: http://sweetgum.nybg.org/boletineae/index.php which I hope you will find more informative. Thanks!

is it this paper where you describe this Tylopilus from Queensland that I also found? If it is, could you please send me a copy? Thx.

there are a bunch of these ‘ballouioids’ that I, my students and collaborators have collected. For now, we are trying to get them sorted out but the data points to a phylogenetic relationship with Tylopilus balloui as we know it in the Americas. A recent paper in Mycotaxon by T. Osmundson & R. Halling is a start to that process. Cheers!

Grand colors!

…and I will never look at the pores of T. balloui the same again. I especially enjoy the example of DIC.

Love them “favoloids”!
