for the well-considered answer.
Unfortunately I was trying to keep up with my hiking group and didn’t have as much time as I would’ve liked to get better photos and more detailed observation. I can tell you that we were walking through sand scrub in Ocala national forest and the most numerous shrubby trees were oaks. The brown leaves in the photo are likely from an oak. The section of wikipedia article on “Florida peninsula inland scrub” has a good list of plants for that habitat here: http://en.wikipedia.org/...
…And we came in contact with most of those species during the hike. Hope that helps.
There is a gray patch of volva on the cap that (to me) has a felted appearance. This suggests that this could be a species of the rhacopus group (which must be rather large in eastern North America).
What trees in the collecting area could be likely symbionts?
A neat little critter.
