This paper describes two new genera of gastroid (truffle-like) Basidiomycotina. Royoungia boletoides is described from Cooloola, Queensland, and is tentatively assigned to the Boletales on the basis of sporocarp and spore morphology. Mycoamaranthus auriorbis is described from a number of collections from northern Queensland and is not placed in any currently described family.
