Used references: “The D. concentrica group comprises the type species and several related taxa that are typically distributed in mild temperate and subtropical climates of western and southern Europe; some related taxa occur in tropical Africa and in the Southern Hemisphere. They have so far not been found in the Americas and the temperate regions of Asia, despite diligent search. All previous records of “D. concentrica“ from Asia and America obviously need to be revised.” http://www.studiesinmycology.org/...
