Why not B. spadiceus?

Here’s a study of the subtomentosus complex in Europe:

American material is also included. It ends up in a separate lineage, closer to ferrugineus than to subtomentosus. And I have recently learned that most of what I have called subtomentosus in Sweden, should be named ferrugineus.

That was my prime suspect. Thanks.
