Amanitas (and other symbiotic species of mushrooms) can cluster…

around a single tree or “share” neighboring trees. The underground interconnections can be quite complex. They may even connect to plants that are not trees such as “Indian Pipes.”

it was the same Amanita, because they grew together on sandy meadow below the young oak tree.

An interesting cluster of material.

If you break up this observation into separate taxa, it would be nice to have them reference each other so that the cluster of material is still linked on MO. Or maybe you already have a Turkey Point list? It must be a very interesting collecting site.
