Dear colleague,

In my book "Guide des Champignons de France et d'Europe" published by 
Delachaux & Niestle in 1994 (co-authored with Bernard Duhem, the 
illustrator), I indicated most of the distributionnal data concerning 
rather rare or sporadical species. Previous to this, I made a wide 
enquiry toward european colleagues and friends, in various countries 
among which are eastern ones. So the given distribution should represent 
rather correctly the actual chorology of species.
The book has been translated in english and published by Collins as 
"Mushrooms and Toadstools of Britain and Europe" (1995).
I hope this helps.
