Abstract

Hed sa med (Boletus griseipurpureus) is a popular edible ectomycorrhizal mushroom associated with stands of Melaleuca leucadendron and Acacia mangium in Thailand. Genetic variation of B. griseipurpureus basidiomes, obtained from the wild, was determined by internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequence analysis. Sequences of B. griseipurpureus collections showed high similarity and constituted a monophyletic clade. The basidiomes were rich in protein and very low in fat confirming their value for human consumption.
