I find it in mixed woods but always close to White Pine. Three years running, at the base of a large White Pine.
in coniferous and hardwood forest. The stature and the appearance of the gills often change markedly as this type matures.
Hygrophoropsis, though aurantiaca seems to be a little more more orangish. Ours are less sturdy than yours. Conifers would be the preferred habitat.
Paxillus has often that kind of “gills” when very young. If Paxillus, both are mycorrhizal with many hosts and both can be saprobic.
If Phylloporus, it could be one or two according to M. Kuo, Phylloporus boletinoides (gills poorly developed) or Phylloporus leucomycelinus (?)in Eastern NA. I don’t know anything about these ones. Apparently it doesn’t look like Phylloporus to me, but I only have photo’s references. Shouldn’t the stem be a little more reddish (and the cap)?
one of the reasons I like mushroom people is because they are so skeptical (and opinionated)! Takes one to know one I guess. Let it shine!
Mushrooms do it less often. Which is why we take note. But still, I don’t think it means much in this case.
However in the case of Chroogomphus and Suillus or Russula eccentrica sensu CA and Cantharellus californicus, it was a good first clue about an interesting ecological relationship going on below ground.
there are many species of plants growing right next to each other… Mushrooms do it too…
My apologies. I did not read your notes. As far as the comments have been; I don’t completely understand why it is not understood that different species can occupy the same substrate at the same time.
why can’t it be random?
was definitely Gyroporus castaneus.
What did the mushroom on the left look like? From the photos I can’t tell if they are the same species, or simply two different fungi growing together as is often the norm for fungi sharing the same ecological niche. Lots of comment about one, but not the other. Forgive me if I sound a bit arrogant, but I’m not. Any answers? Thanks.
There must be some synergy with soil bacteria or other soil fungi that make them grow together. It can’t be random and I don’t think it is love.
looks like Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca.
is a Phylloporus. The collection was made at the 2012 NEMF foray in Pennsylvania and was observed by many.
resembles a Paxillus or Omphalotus, or something around.
the one on the right, that is.
