Pulveroboletus, typified with the North American Pulveroboletus ravenelii, is a genus of stipitate-pileate, ectomycorrhizal boletes. It currently comprises 38 species, some of which need to be revised (He et al. 2019a) and possibly transferred to other genera. Pulveroboletus species are characterized by a mostly yellow general veil (sometimes mixed with olivaceous, brown or various reddish tinges), which can be pulverulent, dry or more or less viscid, olive-brown spore print, and smooth basidiospores (Raspé et al. 2016, Zeng et al. 2017).
