is a confusing epithet. It has been applied to a number of different orange-brown Lactarius species including L. chrysorrheus and L. tabidus. Here’s an interesting paper on section Tabidi in Europe and the taxonomic confusion surrounding the epithet theiogalus. http://www.landesmuseum.at/...
The authors of this paper suggest synonymy between Agaricus theiogalus Bull. (= L. theiogalus Bull. (Gray).) and L. chrysorrheus Fr. However, index fungorum still treats L. theiogalus as a valid name. I think it’s confusing and should not be used, but I guess until it’s officially determined what to do with the epithet it’s fair game!
