It’s more interesting…

…that Phylloporus was considered to be a primitive member of Boletaceae in the pre-genomic times owing to the supposition that tubular hymenophore evolved from gills. Be that as it may, Phylloporus actually evolved from Xerocomus, as inferred from phylogenetic studies, so it’s anything but primitive. The gills are thus a synapomorphic feature, not related to the gills of the agarics. Neves et al. (2011) write: “The placement of a lamellate genus within Boletaceae suggests that hymenophore evolution is not well understood in the family.”

These remind me a little of Xerocomus subtomentosus.

Interesting to find out that molecular studies have shown Phylloporus to be pretty closely related to Xerocomus.

As far as I know it’s a NA taxon, unless it was introduced there with trees. Many things were identified as “rhodoxanthus” in China/SE Asia prior to the advent of molecular studies. P. orientalis was originally described from Malaysia; cyanesces is native to AU.
