is completely mycorrhizal in my experience. Although the mycorrhizae can invade degrading wood as a water source.

Oh they certainly can be saprobic…

I just haven’t seen them do it in my relatively short experience of 5 years. Thanks!

quite often.. I do beleive that they can live both with and without mycorrhiza.

How often do you all see this species growing on decaying wood as opposed to in the ground off of tree roots?
