I have been revising Amanita of Argentina and Chile for some time.
Several sections of the genus are not known from native forest and taxa
from other sections are either quite rare or rarely collected. I
reviewed the literature in my library concerning association of Amanita
and Nothofagus in southern South America, and then compared this data
with the excellent date published by Ridley in his study on Amanita in
New Zealand. Searching through books and journal articles on Amanita in
Australia, I did not come upon mention of collections made where
Nothofagus was present. I am very interested to know of published work
that reliably associates Amanita species with Nothofagus species in
Australia. Likewise, I am seeking articles that reliably link Amanita
species with Nothofagus species in New Caledonia and New Guinea.
I thank in advance those who take the time to advise me on these questions.
