H. bulbiferum is a member of section Sinapizantia together with H. sinapizans, though they do not share many features, either macro or micro. While the latter can grow in coniferous or broadleaf forest the former is more habitat selective and usually is found under oaks, particularly Quercus suber as in this case.
