These were growing on the footprint of a gas pipeline. They have not yet been observed in the adjacent native woods. This might be an invasive species.

bips don’t just grow with woodchips in Cali (also under oak), and that still doesn’t explain why it doesn’t appear to be as common in its supposed native range.

I guess I agree in some basic way with that hypothesis, but it’s more complicated, I think.

probably introduced to CA like most of it’s woodchip species

Interesting distribution on these guys…
