If there were Pinus nearby, then the possibility exists that this is one…

of the non-white rubescent taxa native to the eastern U.S. I doubt that it is identifiable by site because we know of the species in the U.S. mostly thanks to genetic sequencing of multiple specimens from multiple localities.

At present there the WAO website has been gathering morphological data that corresponds to the provisional taxa that we think are indicated by genetic data.

You will find the major suspects listed on this page near the bottom:


The temporary code names are of the form “sp-amerirubescensxx” where the “x” indicates a numerical digit. Some numbers have been excluded; that is to say, the numbers do not form a continuous series.

They start with “sp-amerirubescens01” and run up to “sp-amerirubescens07”.

Very best,

pocket remnants and Pinus elliottii which is extensively farmed between Brisbane and Sunshine Coast.

Was this collections photographed in an area with alien trees?

These specimens are somewhat similar to some of the rubescent taxa we have in the eastern U.S. You mentioned in comments on another observation that the specimens had been found with Pinus elliottii, a tree for which the natural range is in the southeastern U.S.

Very best,
