I’m wondering the same thing.

Why was L. viscosa deprecated? It appears to be paraphyletic but not synonymous with L. lubrica.

“The phylogenetic analysis in Fig. 4 reveals that the three species of the genus Leotia are paraphyletic and split in several groups. Members of the species L. atrovirens can be found in two groups (III and IV), whereby both are highly supported (PP 1/BS 100, each). Samples of L. lubrica are also divided and can be found exclusively in group II (PP 1/BS 99) on the one hand, and as a large complex together with L. viscosa samples in group I (PP 1/BS 78) on the other. In this L. lubrica/viscosa complex, again several subgroups (a–f) are formed, containing exclusively L. lubrica (b, d, e, f; PP 1/BS 90-100) and L. viscosa (c; PP 1/BS 98) species, respectively, as well as a mixture of L. lubrica and L. viscosa samples (a).”
