can be at considerable distance, Jacob. Pinus would be primary hosts. For example, a 150-foot pine tree could be 300-450 feet away, yet produce sporocarps here. Mycorrhizal mycelium is commonplace in nearly all soils anywhere. Part of what defines a desert is the lack of mycorrhizae. The halo effect of mycorrhizal fungi is 2-3 times the height of the potential host plant.
Mycorrhizal… I’m doubtful. The 3 similar collections I’ve found recently didn’t have any host candidates in common, as far as I know. Have any specific types of plants to look out for?
giving slightly when squeezed. Rhizopogons are always mycorrhizal IME. Was there a tree or other possible host plant nearby?
