I’m sure this is a useful name for you too, though this particular species was described by Bresadola (Italy). It grows in warm and sandy habitats with pine. Rare in Sweden, more common along the Mediterranean coasts.

Hi Irene. How nice to see some beautiful photos of fungi from Sweden, where we are pretty sure we can use Friesian names!
