Specimen available

Growing among Honduran Pine (Pinus caribaea var hondurensis) in Bosque de Pinos, Cayey, PR. Pine forests are not native to the island of Puerto Rico and this forest presents a number of introduced mycorrhizal species such as Suillus cothurnatus, Russula cf. brevipes and Pisolithus tinctorius.

Used references: The issue of Mycorrhizae from 1971 mentions that the US Forest Service inoculated pine stands in Puerto Rico with soil from North Carolina in order to promote their growth through mycorrhizae, because pine forests are not native to the island. This may be a specimen originating from that region.

Recognized by sight: I think there are a few taxa in this group in Mexico, and there are likely a few in PR too. Not sure how many there are in the USA, but A. amerirubescens is likely one of many.
