The boletes are macrofungi which have undergone extensive taxonomic revisions since the advent of molecular tools. This paper provides the first DNA sequences of Boletus rubricitrinus, a common Florida bolete often found in lawns under Quercus, and likely has a distribution that extends to Texas.Based on ITS and LSU sequences and morphological studies we propose moving it to the genus Pulchroboletus. As the holotype is in poor condition, an epitype is established here. A thorough description of macroscopic and microscopic features is also provided for the species. These molecular and morphological data will be useful to further improve our understanding of bolete taxonomy.
