Leccinum carpini has cinnamon brown spores and in the sense of Schulz/Moser is a synonym of Leccinum griseum. Leccinellum crocipodium has honey yellow spores and was known as Leccinum nigrescens. But we have not heard the last of this group’s changing nomenclature.

why not…..

L. crocopodium is a European species, but the American version has a name….L. Carpini. It seems it is depricated here, in place of L. pseudoscabrum, which is macroscopically way different. In seems in light of all this, L. carpini would be the correct name and should be reintroduced? What’s your opinion?

I don’t know if it matches the European species

But I do see what appears to be your species in most wet years under oaks in lawn areas. Kuo has never collected it.


I considered L. crocipodium
