in Oregon, so likely the same. I meant to say well-drained soil. Glad you added that information. Eucalyptus and Live Oak don’t host Rhizopogons that I am aware of. Live Oak especially is sort of rare in Oregon except for Roseburg and areas south: about the same range as Oregon myrtle.
I thought the same about the splitting. It has been a season of sudden and heavy rains. There was another nearby with a more regular oval shape, but I haven’t been able to locate it for a subsequent photo.
It is nearby the 3-needled Pinus radiata (Monterey), Live Oak, and Eucalyptus. The soil is not particularly sandy, but is well draining due to the slope.
on the peridium are distictive for R. occidentalis. The rapid growth indicates a long growing season, and abundant rainfall, which results in the sporocarp splitting like this. Should be near 2-needle pine like Pinus contorta. Soil should have a sandy element to it.
