Based on our previous molecular phylogenetic analyses, four new genera are described, namely Baorangia, Lanmaoa, Parvixerocomus, and Rugiboletus, and one known genus, Neoboletus, is re-delimitated. Four new species and nine new combinations are proposed. Morphological characters of each genus and related eleven species are described and illustrated. Most of species in the genera described from southwestern China are wild edible mushrooms and can be found in free markets.

Paxilloboletus gen. nov., a new lamellate bolete genus from tropical Africa

Paxilloboletus gen. nov. is presented, a new lamellate bolete genus represented by two tropical African species that lack clamp connections and form a separate generic clade within the Boletaceae phylogeny.

The Genus Leccinum (Boletaceae, Boletales) from China Based on Morphological and Molecular Data

Nine Leccinum species from China were revealed, including three new species, namely L. album, L. parascabrum and L. pseudoborneense, and detailed descriptions of the new species were presented.

One hundred noteworthy boletes from China

M morphological studies and phylogenetic analyses were conducted including species of Boletaceae from China and other parts of the world, indicating that seven subfamily-level major clades and 62 generic clades can be retrieved, 52 of which are found in China.

Alessioporus rubriflavus (Boletaceae), a new species from the eastern United States

A new species from the eastern United States is described, Alessioporus rubriflavus, based on unique morphology and molecular data (ITS and LSU nrDNA genes) and ecology, geographical distribution and comparison to other closely allied taxa are discussed.

Psiloboletinus is an independent genus sister to Suillus

ABSTRACT The genus Psiloboletinus was proposed by Rolf Singer in 1945 based on Phylloporus lariceti, a species that associates with Larix in the Altai Mountains of central and eastern Asia. However,



Molecular phylogeny of Caloboletus (Boletaceae) and a new species in East Asia

A new species was described and a key to the six species of Caloboletus is provided, characterized by the combination of the yellow hymenophore, smooth spores that are olive-brown in deposit, an interwoven pileipellis and a distinctly bitter taste of the context.

Molecular Phylogeny and Biodiversity of the Boletes

A phylogenetic analysis of boletes from diverse habitats using both nuclear and mitochondrial ribosomal DNA loci demonstrated that the genera Suillus and Leccinum were well supported and neither of the competing taxonomies proposed by Singer or by Smith was completely supported.
