it doesn’t matter really. There are so many different opinions about what to call these Hydnums. By some they are all varieties of repandum, and it certainly makes it easier to put a species name on them.
Most of the time, I can tell the scandinavian forms/species apart, but I’m not so sure about the american ones..

If you think H. rufescens is different than H. repandum you can click the approve link at the top of the page to un-depreciate it.

How convenient

Not a chance to argue for one or another species here, then..
