Octaviania, Phylloporus, Retiboletus, Rhodactina, Suillellus, Xerocomellus (one species each). Among Indian states, Himachal Pradesh and Sikkim represent the most boletes mushroom (16 species each) followed, Meghalaya (13), West Bengal (11), Madhya Pradesh and Uttarakhand (7 each), Jammu & Kashmir (5) Chhattisgarh and Kerala (4) and rest of states showed 3 or less number of species. Six species of boletes namely: Boletellus ananas, B. chrysenteroides, B. dissiliens, B. pseudochrysenteroides, B. corneri and Boletus edulis were recorded for the first time from sal forest of central India (Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh).
