[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yet another large fungi from my camping trip to Newnes, and yet another mystery. I have searched the Australian websites and consulted my field guides, but I am still not sure what species this is. It obvious comes from the family Boletaceae with their tube-like spore chambers. But apart from that I have no idea.
There were several growing tens of metres apart in open eucalypt forest. The cap is about 120mm across.

Hello Chris,
Beautiful photo of this fungi. Can't help with the ID. Great natural colours, excellent sharpness and choice of POV. Beautiful environment.

Hello Chris,
With so many mushrooms in TN, feel like going to photograph some! This in your picture is really attractive to the eye and deliciously contrasting with the surroundings. I like the POV and light management. Good job!
TSF, Regards, Jesús

Hmm, don't know what this is either although I've seen similar here.
Laslo might know this one.
Cheers & TFS

It is impossible for me to give you further information with no more details and a deeper look. It reminds me of some some Xerocomus we have around here, even a Pulveroboletus.
The colour rocks! :)
The POV is amazing, how did you get so low with a reflex? do you have an angle finder?
Thanks and regards, Felipe.

Hi Chris,

this one re difficult to identify, it looks not upon a bolete from the underside. Not a sponge!
Great pov and details with fine orange colours.

Hello Chris,
A fine capture of what looks like a species of Boletus, or related to it. great low POV that show up its fiery colours against a contrasting natural BG with excellent sharpness.
Most fungi in this group are edible and tasty.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hi Chris,
I can't help in proper identification either, it's surely a species from Boletaceae family, but I can't go further. Cap color is very spectacular, you captured it greatly, with perfect exposure and background (even if I don't know what's that "something" in the right upper corner. Knapsack maybe?). A pity the closest square centimeters of the fruitbody were closer than the focal point, so they're a bit oof. Otherwise a nice image - not a surprise Jesús also wants to find such a beauty. :)
Tfs, friendly regards, László
