The name flavorubens has priority for this species.

The type of flavorubens was collected in Ohio and sent to Paris for naming in the 1850s. The type was in remarkable condition when I examined it several years ago. The inflated cells of the volva were still strikingly yellow in a collection that has resided in Paris through two world wars.

Very best,
