Butyriboletus peckii

  (Redirected from Boletus peckii)

Butyriboletus peckii is a fungus of the genus Boletus native to eastern North America. It was first described by Charles Christopher Frost in 1878.[2] Until 2014, it was known as Boletus peckii. Recent changes[3][4] in the phylogenetic framework of the Boletaceae prompted the transfer of this species, along with several other related boletes, including Caloboletus calopus, to the genus Caloboletus.[5] In 2015, Kuan Zhao and colleagues published analysis that demonstrated that the bolete belongs to Butyriboletus, closely related to Butyriboletus pulchriceps.[6]
