Leccinum vulpinum is more common than realized

Leccinum aurantiacum is probably a European species, and no records are known from North America. The descriptions of L. aurantiacum in North American literature represent a mixture between a L. vulpinum-like, conifer associated taxon and North American species that are associated with broad-leaved trees, such as L. insigne, and L. brunneum.
