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

No specimen available

These were abundant in Zone 45 (pictured) and elsewhere. Commonly, those brown boletes, these Indian pipes, and chanterelles would all occur in areas that had any of them. Boletes and chanterelles are MR fungi, so these Indian pipes are probably parasitizing one or both. Russula and Amanita season are just about to launch, too, and both genera tend to occur in the same areas again.

I tried to get a photo showing the extent of the cluster. There were other clusters that I saw all over several square miles of forest, though none seemed as extensive as this one.

looks like they are following an expanding mushroom colony.
