A large yellow bolete has been fruiting in large numbers on the edge of a pine forest in Seven Mile Beach for several years. Fruit bodies were collected over the period 2018–20 and identified as a species of Buchwaldoboletus, namely B. hemichrysus. This is the first record for the genus in Tasmania and for this species in Australia. However, a more thorough examination including molecular sequencing is needed to fully verify the identification of several similar species of Buchwaldoboletus, including the species found at Seven Mile Beach.
