Guess it escapes from cultivation regularly now. Posted new observation with photos of specimens I found near Allentown, PA yesterday.
From what I can tell, they’ve only started cropping up in the Midwest over the last 5-10 years. I sequenced two specimens from Wisconsin recently and they were both very closely related to Asian specimens with sequences in GenBank. I just set up email tracking for this species— hoping to collect more specimens from across North America!
It’s not uncommon to see P. citrinopileatus in the midwest. Perhaps escaped from cultivation, or maybe there is a similar looking midwestern taxon.
