Not weird at all.

If you have a 150-foot tall tree nearby, a mycorrhizal fungus associated with that tree could be fruiting 150 feet away from the trunk.

Fungi with larger trees can be found even further away from the trunk. So it takes a while to get used to seeing “nearby” trees.

Weirdly enough, these are growing under my glass table outside. I am parked at the verge of the forest, and I have a ground rug. There are three larger versions of this little guy poking up from under the rug edge. There is not a tree RIGHT overhead… But there are several large conifers whose boles are 20 feet away. I have not actually looked for an oak.

oak tree nearby? If not, what were the nearest trees?
