Starting to straighten out and grow upward(when these finish their growing cycle they are completely erect with “flowers” pointing straight to the sky). When they start they are like small ferns- all curled up.
Abundant crops all over the forest floor beneath conifers-These were found beneath large Western hemlock(Tsuga heterophylla) and Doug fir(Pseudotsuga menziessii).
Temp: low 70’s cloudy, light rain.

Glad to know that we may be seeing some possible delicious lobster mushrooms in these Monotropa spots here in the near future!
Much appreciated :)
In eastern North America it has lots of hosts in the Russulaceae, but in the Pacific Northwest this plant seems to be exclusively associated with the R. brevipes gr.
