we won’t use European names for CA taxa, but since this is a pretty clearly defined species concept “sensu CA” is a better alternative than just proposing Hygrophorus.
Also, some of the Hygrophorus and Tricholoma that have been sequenced do have bicontental distributions, so it’s not out of the question…
