Please tell us more about “ironwood.”

Is “ironwood” a name locally used for a tree that is an Australian import or a North American import?

My concern is that the cap seems to have glare coming off it, and consequently, I can’t see the usual color pattern that gives A. marmorata its name (a light grayish-tannish marbling rather suggestive of the pigment distribution in A. phalloides and A. arocheae).

Very best,
