Author's notes

Cap 85mm in diameter. Brilliant, deep red and smooth. A small cluster were found growing in deep leaf litter atop a quite rocky ridge. This fungus looks similar to B. obscurecoccineus, but the spores do not match the description in Fuhrer. Also, the stems were short and not apparently flecked. The spore print was sparse, so the brown colour only became apparent under the compound scope.

Kerri-Lee, I note from your images that this specimen did not change colour on injury.
Unfortunately I do not know enough about this genus to give you a positive ID, sorry.

Not a problem Teresa. It may even be an unknown species!
I can say that the wildlife find them tasty. On the day I took this image there were 3, large boletes in a cluster. 24 hours later there was not the slightest trace. Instead, there was some scraping and a neat pile of wombat dung!

KerriLee, you are correct this is not B. obscurecoccineus. In fact it's not a Boletellus, the spores do not fit. There are about nine named species in this genus listed from Australia plus a few just sp. Sorry to have taken so long to come back to this I'm trying to catch up on my backlog at home............. I'm suggesting calling it Heimioporus fruticicola this is an ectomycorrhizae with genera such as Myrtaceae and Casuarinaceae. Did you notice any of the tree species nearby?

Great photos of a striking looking fungus. Images of the stipe also help with identification.
