Alessioporus and Pulchroboletus are proposed as new monotypic genera in order to assess the thermo–xerophilic European species Xerocomus ichnusanus and X. roseoalbidus, respectively. The present research has focused on both morphological features and multi–gene molecular phylogeny (nrITS, nrLSU and tef1 data sets) to elucidate the taxonomic status of these two rare Mediterranean boletes and delineate a natural classification within the family Boletaceae. Accurate macro– and microscopical descriptions of the two species based on inclusive taxon sampling are provided and supported by line drawings of the main anatomical features. Phylogenetic relationships, ecology, biogeographic distribution and delimitation from the most closely allied taxa are also highlighted. In addition, epitype collections are selected for both species.
