I think I managed to fix it by removing the synonyms and creating a new Boletus radicans. For some strange reason, both radicans and an american species, marshii, had been deprecated in favour of Boletus albidus Schaeff, which isn’t even a valid name.

Yes, I know :)

I chose B. radicans but then I was told THIS NAME IS NOT IN USE ANYMORE, haha … of course it is Boletus radicans. B. albidus is a synonym of it. And of Postia too. Kinda nomen dubium.

Boletus albidus?

What kind of name is that..?
Boletus albidus Schaeff. is an old name for Postia stiptica(!)

This looks like B. radicans to me..
