Boletus Mushroom

Boletaceae family


I found several bolete mushrooms of varying sizes beneath eucalyptus trees, in leaf and bark debris. What I thought would be an easy ID has become a little bit more complicated, but I think I have potential candidates narrowed down to two species: (1) Boletellus obscurecoccineus, aka rhubarb bolete, and (2) Boletus barragensis. Both species are Australian natives. Fairly aged specimens. Amazing pores. ID suggestions most welcomed.


Found growing in leaf litter beneath some large eucalyptus trees. Bordering bushland area at Griffith University, Nathan Campus, Brisbane.
