The system should allow you to enter Boletus radicans, but it might
have a small bug related to an earlier misunderstanding involving albudus
and radicans, I forget the details. B. radicans is a perfectly good
name for a well defined and very distinct European Bolete.

Boletus radicans or Boletus albidus?

I wanted to type in the term “Boletus radicans”
but the system didn’t let me do it; refusing the name.
