Name: Boletus amygdalinus
Citation: California Mushrooms, A Field Guide to the Boletes, p. 50. 1975.
Preferred Synonyms: Suillellus amygdalinus (Thiers) Vizzini, Simonini & Gelardi
This is a nom. nov. for Boletus puniceus Chiu (Mycologia 40: 199-231. 1948) non Thiers Mycologia 57: 529. 1965.
Authority incorrectly cited as (Thiers) Thiers in 1975.
An absolutely terrible genus name, but it appears this is the genus name for this clade of boletes.
I don’t think B. amygdalinus is toxic – that seems also to be a matter of copy-paste. David A has mentioned it as edible, and I have tried a small amount with no problem
