Oregon hosts hundreds of Rhizopogon species. Most are associated with Douglas-fir, but some are with pine, spruce, hemlock and larch. The largest reported to my knowledge was a huge 1.5-pound collection of fused Rhizopogon rubescens found with White or Whitebark pine in Southern Oregon several years ago.
Most of the Rhizopogon are distinquished by spore size and shape, so microscopy important to positive identification of the genus. In addition, Oregon hosts many other hypogeous fungi, and I’m CERTAIN now that you’ve found your first Rhizopogon occidentalis (edible, btw) the true truffles cannot be far behind!
…a lot the night before. I was driving back from OMS Fall Foray and made a stop at Browns Camp, where I’d never been before. And this is the first Rhizopogon I ever found.
although I’ve not hunted Brown’s camp much: just been by it. Looks to have lots of Lodgepole pine needles on the ground.
Was this collected after a heavy rain? Gleba looks nearly supersaturated with water, which can throw off even seasoned Rhizopogon hunters like myself.
