Observation 9441: Rhizopogon rubescens (Tul. & C. Tul.) Tul. & C. Tul.

This collection was associated with Lodgepole pine at about 3300 feet elevation. Rhizopogon rubescens is very commonly found with 2- and 3- and 5-needle pines. Perhaps the largest specimen of any Rhizopogon I am aware of was found in Southern Oregon about 1994 and confirmed as Rhizopogon rubescens. That specimen weight over a pound, and amounted to several separate Rhizopogon rubescens which somehow joined together while maturing. It if distinquished mainly from the red-staining rhizomorphs on the peridium, plus the large size (for a Rhizopogon).
