was where Klofac put R. phaeseolisporus. I have not requested any loans (yet). Other projects are on the front burners at the moment.

Well, if I remember right,

it coulda been slightly viscid. Klofac ruled out R. phaseolisporus though if I remember well. But it certainly belongs to Tylopilus. The material is in Vienna. Did you loan the Tylopilus from Queensland as you wished some time ago?

NOT Rubinoboletus

but rather looks like a taxon described by Li & Watling from Western Australia that they called Rubinoboletus phaeseolisporus. Was it slightly viscid? It should have bean-shaped spores, some slightly ornamentation on the stipe and according to a prelim molecular analysis (from material in W Australia), sits on a clade with the ballouioids as a Tylopius. I will need to post the WA material I think. Thanks!

into Tylopilus.
