Observation 461052: Monotropa hypopitys L.

When: 2021-07-20

Collection location: Midland, Michigan, USA [Click for map]

Who: Eric (eozkan)

Specimen available

Collected this Monotropa species from a small patch beneath a mature red oak in a mixed woodland. No other examples appeared nearby. This one is unusual in term of both color and gross morphology from the typical examples of M. uniflora commonly found in my area…I have never seen it before. From internet searches appears to be M. hypopitys but would appreciate any clarification on species.
