Collection location: Mount Jefferson Wilderness, Oregon, USA [Click for map]
Location: Mowich Lake. West side of Cascade Range, about 5100 feet elevation. Mixed connifer forest. This area was burned about 4 years ago, so perhaps more downed logs and dead trees than living ones.
This specimen grew on the ground, in burned area.

Rhizomorphs on exterior of peridium and at base, staining red or pinkish.
Wish we had more information. That high supports either White pine, Whitebark pine, or maybe Sugar pine (although it’s a little low for that pine). Tentatively call it Rhizopogon rubescens, based just on the peridium staining.
