the explanation

Hi Eva,

that’s what I am believing …. Leccinum oxydabile and Leccinum thalassinum are very old names that have been used during my childhood but have been abandoned in Europe in the Nineties I think. Some say they are forms some still put them in synonymy as I do. I only wanted to know if there is a real difference between the synonymized European species and the American which seems to have been re-erected.
I simply believe they all are just one species called L. variicolor. At least I am unable to find any difference in it.

Description in the book, Mushrooms and Other Fungi of North America, by Roger Phillips, match exactly

I looked on the net and some say it’s just a synonym for L. variicolor

L. oxydabile ss. Singer 1938a?

The other interpretations of this taxon seem to be L. variicolor. I am not sure if L. oxydabile is a good species at all. Opinions diverge very strongly.
