Both manzanita and pine are mycorrhizal. Which species would you say was closer to this obs.?
Good info as usual.
Rhizopogon occidentalis is very common and is often found in large numbers, anywhere near Pinus (especially Lodgepole pine) in sandy soils.
The other possibility here would be Rhizopogon rubescens, which is found less commonly in the same situations. R. occidentalis can only be rated
“promising” in this case, because it should have orange rhizomorphs on the peridium (root-like structures). This has red rhizomorphs, which would be more diagnostic of R. rubescens.
