Notes: Added because it’s another example of a (largely) non-chlorophyllic plant that probably makes it’s living parasitizing Rhizopogons.

For both the list and the word for the relationship. I was even able to find the name of a non-photosynthetic plant I sometimes find (Pleuricospora fimbriolata) which I had been unable to find before. I thought it was rare, but apparently it is found throughout the west coast area.
A search of the internet for mycoheterotrophs turned up lots of associations. Family names indicate more than one genus and genus names indicate more than one species.
Allotropa virgata – Tricholoma magnivelare
Corallorhiza maculata – Russulaceae
Cryptothallus mirabilis -Tulasnella (a jelly fungus)
Hemitomes congestum – Hydnellum peckii & H. aurantiacum
Monotropa hypopitys – Tricholoma cingulatum
Monotropa uniflora – Russulaceae
Monotropastrum humile – Russula
Monotropsis odorata – Hydnellum
Pityopus californicus – Tricholoma
Pleuricospora fimbriolata – Gautieria monticola
Pterospora andromedea – Rhizopogon
Sarcodes sanguinea – Rhizopogon
Did you know Pinedrops are also one of the indicator species for matsutake being nearby?
