Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

The name Leucopaxillus amarus has been misapplied to the bitter brown Leucopaxillus that is common in California. Technically Leucopaxillus amarus (Alb. & Schwein.) Kühner could still be valid name according to Index Fungorum, but L. gentianeus apparently is a better name to use in almost all cases.
