SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Butyriboletus fechtneri

Butyriboletus fechtneri is a basidiomycete fungus in the family Boletaceae. It was regarded as a species of Boletus, but in 2014 was transferred to the newly erected genus Butyriboletus, after molecular data revealed that it is a member of the "Regius" clade, quite distant from the core clade of B. edulis and allied species. Butyriboletus fechtneri is native to Europe, where it forms ectomycorrhizal associations with various broad-leaved trees of the Fagaceae family oak and chestnut. So far it has been molecularly confirmed from Austria, Cyprus, France and Sweden, it is considered an endangered species in the Czech Republic. Recent molecular phylogenetic studies have shown regional populations of B. fechtneri to be variable genetically, suggesting they might be in the process of speciation.

Ost Autobahn

The Ost Autobahn A4 or "Eastern Motorway" is part of the European route E60 and goes from Vienna to the town of Nickelsdorf, on the Hungarian border. The road begins at the A23 at the Prater junction in Vienna, travels through Simmering, Vienna International Airport, Bruck an der Leitha, Weiden am See and Mönchhof to the border town of Nickelsdorf. Crossing the border into Hegyeshalom, the road becomes the Hungarian M1 motorway which continues on to Budapest; the road is 66 km long. During the overflow of asylum seekers traveling from Hungary during September 2015, the highway was closed intermittently preventing the traffic between Hungary and Austria, it was reported that Austrian army was deployed on the border. There is a new junction planned at Albern, as part of the lengthening of the Donauuferautobahn A22, which in the future should be extended into a so-called Halbknoten or half-junction; this would mean, for instance, that it would only be possible to go from Schwechat onto the A22, meaning one would have to travel from the A22 to the A4, in the direction of Schwechat.

In the future there are plans to connect the six-lane extension between the Schwechat junction and the airport. The section from Vienna to Vienna International Airport will be called the Flughafenautobahn, or "Airport Motorway"; as of 2014, there are plans to widen the A4 from 2x2 to 2x3 lanes between Vienna International Airport and Fischamend at a cost of 32 million euro.
