Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

This is a misapplied Name in North America:

North American collections previously labeled X. chrysenteron fall primarily into two species: one common in western North America described here as X. diffractus, and at least one undescribed species from eastern North America. These are not conspecific with the European X. chrysenteron, but rather appear more closely related to each other and to the European X. cisalpinus.

Leaving as valid, but not exporting

Since Index Fungorum and MycoBank haven’t adopted Xerocomellus and the significant majority of observations on MO are for Boletus chrysenteron, I’ve left them both as valid names, but have set it so the export just using the name Boletus chrysenteron.
