Xerocomus is a genus of fungi that is related to Boletus. Many mycologists do not recognize the distinction; however, several molecular studies have demonstrated that they are two distinct genera, with clear morphological differences. The genus Xerocomus has been further divided into Xerocomellus and Hemileccinum by Šutara (2008). The members of the Xerocomellus genus are more closely related to Boletus than true Xerocomus is, which is relatively distantly related to Boletus and more closely related to Phylloporus.
Most members of Xerocomus are edible.
Ladurner and Simonini published a monograph on Xerocomus in 2003. In 2008, Hills included 18 species found in Britain, not including some species sometimes treated as Xerocomus, including Boletus pulverulentus and Boletus impolitus.Molecular phylogenetic studies strongly imply that Xerocomus is a heterogeneous genus of polyphyletic origin.

PAT COOKS: Bay bolete, Xerocomus badius
A personnel favourite, and would put it up there with the cep, the taste is great but the main reason I favour it is that it suffers much much less from larvae infestation and slug attacks, the squirrels have a taste for it though so there will be a few bite marks about.What to observe.the cap.chestnut brown and smooth,suede like when young, grows up to 10-12cmthe tubes. off white,yellow to green with age.the stem.
