why go with the generic?

Obviously it’s a boletaceae, but that’s about as vague as it gets. I mean I would put ’i’d call it that’ as a vote for boletaceae, but one could say that about any non-polypore with a pored underside. Personally i’m almost certain than it’s aureoboletus innixus based on a whole lot of studying up on that one and it’s lookalikes, but calling it boletaecae is like calling any agaric agaricacaeae (or labeling a picture of a bunch of people a group of hominids)…it’s not WRONG, but I can’t say I like having the family name as the community consensus.
