Some Japanese sites call Boletellus emodensis "Boletus chrysanthemum" but the pore size and pattern looks different to what is called Boletellus emodensis is Australia. The Japanese regard their version as edible.
This very shaggy fungus appears either solitary or in twos on dead wood the upper, drier parts of Barrington Tops National Park. It doesn't seem to like the more humid rainforest conditions of the lowlands. It is very common at certain times of the year on dead causarina logs or stumps. Pores are yellow, and stain instantly blue-green on bruising.
According to Tony Young, several species are close to Boletus emodensis, but none has the minute cross striations on the spores. It is principally a Queensland fungus.
Boletus ananiceps is similar to Boletellus emodensis, but tends to be scaly and is wholly wine pink tinted.
