O. leporina sensu auct. (or O. fuckelii) is a rather common species growing under Picea or Abies, well characterizes by its brown hymenium and fulvous outer surface. Spores are broadly ellipsoid and measure around 13-14 µm in length.
O. alutacea are light brown (alutaceous) on all parts when the specimens are fresh; spores are cylindric, around 13.5-15 µm in length
