Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

Found in the big, open-ish pine stand, which seems to be composed primarily of Eastern white pine (though birch and jack pine occur on the fringes of what wood).

Fifth photo taken a bit more than a week later than the first four. These fruit for weeks in the mid-autumn here; the pine stand’s duff is full of mounds where these are, or were, some disturbed and with only fragments of stipe left. The squirrels apparently harvest ’em. Earlier this species fruited in the more open jack pine stand a half-kilometer to the south, but that seems to have stopped once frequent morning frosts began happening.
