M. platyphylia is a valid species in Europe, Scandinavia and western and central Russia. In the US we have M. rodmani, according to this paper.

Wasn’t the comment that M. rodmani is a synonym for M. platyphylia , and that M. platyphylia should be deprecated? Why is there another name given here, shouldn’t just M. platyphylia made a synonym for M. rodmani? No need to go through old obs. and add a new name is there?
