Possible mycorrhizal symbionts?

Associated with Western hemlock, Sitka spruce, Douglas-fir? Peridium stains red: atypical for R. vinicolor. You are well within the known range of other red-staining Rhizopogons.

Spores are ellipsoidal. I don’t notice truncated though. R. vinicolor should be truncate-ellisoidal, according to NATS Field Guide To Selected North American Truffles and Truffle-like Fungi. Truncate spores should look abruptly cut-off, according to the same source. That feature by itself is rather odd. It is something I would expect from many common Rhizopogons.

Was the first photo found in situ? Unusual for R. vinicolor to be epigeous.
