What usually is called “glaucopus” with hardwoods, should be lepidus.
A “twin species” of scabrosus with hardwoods is known from Central Europe, but not yet investigated.

If you like, I can send you a brief key to the taxon so far known from Sweden.
Don’t take it as a final solution, there’s still some work to do with these species. Sequencing an old type collection of glaucopus for example..

You say in the notes

that S. scabrosus is growing with pine?
I know scabrosus and glaucopus from deciduous forests and mycorrhizal with oak!
Is this a new discovery?
We have some glaucopus that we are not able to ID. Maybe they are the same here?
I think I have already posted some but not sure.
