The issue of whether chrysophlebius and admirabilis are the same has been discussed at length over decades. For a good overview (including type revisions and lectotypifications) see Minnis & Sundberg (2010):
I agree with their conclusion that P. chrysophlebius and P. admirabilis are one and the same. Both names are valid, and if you consider them synonyms then P. chrysophlebius should be used.
Neither MB nor IF/SF synonymizes Pluteus admirabilis with Pluteus chrysophlebius:
http://www.mycobank.org/... (MB, P. admirabilis)
http://www.mycobank.org/... (MB, P. chrysophlebius)
http://www.speciesfungorum.org/... (SF, P. admirabilis)
http://www.indexfungorum.org/... (IF, P. chrysoplebius)
So, for these names, those two databases agree. (But occasionally they do not.)
Pluteus admirabilis is not deprecated on Index Fungorum. Are these databases out of date or am I missing something?
