Pulveroboletus ravenelii

Pulveroboletus is a genus of fungi in the Boletaceae family. The genus has a cosmopolitan distribution and contains 25 species.[1]


The genus was first described by American mycologist William Alphonso Murrill in 1909. He defined species in the genus as having a cap and stem "clothed with a conspicuous sulphur-yellow, powdery tomentum, which may be the remains of a universal veil: context white, fleshy; tubes adnate, yellowish, covered with a large veil: spores oblong-ellipsoid, ochraceous-brown: stipe solid, annulate, not reticulate." Murrill set Pulveroboletus ravenelii as the type species.[2]
