proposal from Mr.Klofac but this was very tentatively in 2007 or 2008.

Boletellus Watling sp 13?

I don’t seem to be able to find this taxon in Watling’s Cooloola paper. However, I see that in the first of that series, “18. Boletellus sp. 5” on p. 118 sounds very much like this spp.

Thank you too Roy!

I’ll stay tuned in any case!

that I have now seen in Queensland and SW Western Australia. This Observation (65542) and Observations 65902, 65541 appear to be the same thing. As far as I know, it is undescribed. The red stipe, brown cap, cyanescence, AND the mustard brown (olivaceous) basal tomentum of the stipe is diagnostic to me.

On the Boletineae website, I have used a provisional name: Boletellus denfrasermark because I knew this bolete from Fraser Island and from verification from K. Syme that this occurred near Denamark, Western Australia. Since that verbal from Katie, I have now seen the taxon in Western Oz. That’s the etymology behind “denfrasermark” – just a mental placeholder for me at this point. I will add my own Observation here shortly.

Also, I need to check out Boletus australis. Privately, some have suggested this taxon is mentioned in one of Watling’s papers in the Cooloola series. Thanks for those leads.

We are now pursuing in earnest the diversity of Boletellus in Australia based on our particular focus over the past 4 years in Queensland.

Thanks very much! Stay tuned . . .

a Boletellus, but we can’t know unless some spores are examined. IF it is a Boletellus it does not look like any I have seen in Australia.

Maybe Roy could help….

Is there anyone familiar with a taxon called BOLETUS AUSTRALIS? My notes say this observation could be this species …
