Notes: This scaly puffball was growing in sandy soil in a kind of narrow projection of the sandy, open Zone 51 habitat in between Zones 49 and 50. It was solitary.

but haven’t really had any experience with any of them, so my suspicions are probably without merit. I know Monterey pine can associate with something similar to S. citrinum on the Oregon coast just north of Cape Lookout. It’s kind of a toss-up whether the host species of Monterey pine or Monterey cypruss, as both are present and nearby. As important as the host species is the habitat: sandy soils (or just sand dunes) seem to be important factors in finding S. citrinum, at least in Oregon. But the only time I have collected what I thought was S. citrinum was in sand dunes with either Lodgepole or Monterey pine, and less often with Monterey cypruss. But I wouldn’t expect any of those species to be in your area.
The presence of Pinus strongly suggests S. citrinum.
Looks similar to S. citrina.
