Michael Kuo in Mushroom Expert comments…."The Index Fungorum reports Rubinoboletus ballouii as the current name for this taxon, citing a 1983 publication by Heinemann & Rammeloo in Bulletin du Jardin Botanique National de Belgique (the “Bulletin of the National Botanic Garden of Belgium,” which I doubt we will find on newsstands everywhere). I will put my library’s interlibrary loan service to the test, as well as my French, and report back."
