Both occurrences were in the same location, a relatively high area here in NE PA, asl > 2000’; soil with (presumably) low ph. A collection I made was posted as a MO obs. The habitat is an open area near a wetland with gray birch trees (Betula populifolia)…small ones 10’-15’, a few small spruce trees, and lots of cranberries. There are blueberry bushes in the general area, but I believe not specifically where the mushrooms were observed.
Although I’ve not been for a few years, I recall this spp being found, in years where I was there, around willow. I have seen it other places in N America around willow as well.
…I have found a fruiting of A. wellsii every year for the last 4 years (and again 2 weeks ago) on the side of a road with lowbush blueberries and Black Birch. I think my OB is here in the archives.
who doesn’t foray much — Heather Monroe. She did not
notice what plants and trees were around it.
Blueberries are a constant part of the understory where I last saw this species (in northern Quebec).
It’s a curious species.
Oak/hickory forest there, primarily. A lot of white oaks. I’ll see if I can find out who got this one & if they know what else was there.
It seems so strange to me that this mushroom exists at on 150 m elev. so far south. The northern limit of its range reputedly extends beyond the tree line in northern Canada.
