IlistrationBoletes have fruiting bodies like agarics in shape and texture, but their spores are produced inside pores or tubes. Many of the boletes are edible although little is known about our native species. Been mycorrhizal our natives are found in both our Nothofagus and Leptospermum forest. While others that are introduced are found under exotics trees like Oak and Birch. Poor surface

These are fungi which have lost there ability to forceful eject their spores in stead they rely on insects or birds to eat them and cary off the spores for dispersal. Many are brightly coloured to attract birds and found on or partly buried in the ground.
