The genus Phlebopus (Boletales) in tropical ecosystems in Mexico.

Poroid Boletales are important ectomycorhizal partners mostly in temperate regions, but some poorly or understudied taxa of boletes are also found in tropical forests. In Mexico 212 species of boletes in 20 genera have been recorded for the entire country, with 41 species known from subtropical mesophytic forests and 12 from tropical rain forests. A review of the literature reveals that there are presently no records of Phlebopus species from Mexico. A recent revision of all bolete collections housed in the ENCB, FCME and UJAT herbaria turned up three distinct Phlebopus taxa: Phlebopus beniensis, Phlebopus portentosus and Phlebopus sp. This third species appears to be a new and endemic taxon in Mexico. Descriptions, images and a key to the species of Phlebopus of Mexico will be presented.
