can be found sometimes under a large number of hosts from big-needle pines to Quercus sp to Lithocarpus sp to apparently Arbutus sp (ive seen em under madrone as well intermingled with Leccinum manzanitae, but not without am oak nearby). the tree they choose depends on whether or not the conditions in that area are able to support them through their full life cycle.
