often in pine plantations…Africa, South America, Australia, New Zealand, etc.
One odd thing is that once in Australia, some of them have managed to jump hosts to Eucalyptus. Once this happened, they may have been moved to South America not only with European trees, but also with Eucalyptus (at least in a few cases).
I am not an expert but from my understanding I believe these were introduced into Australia. They were growing among pine trees which are also introduced here so it would make sense that they are not native to the area.
and ONLY introduced to the south?
Yes I do, a number of these were growing within a pine plantation, none were seen growing around the native trees. I suspect these were introduced here.
that have not been the true muscaria of Eurasia. Do you know what tree(s) (particularly alien ones) were in the immediate area (within 10 or 15 meters) of the place where the photograph was taken?
