must have other mycorrhizal hosts.

Some mycorrhizal mushrooms are pickier than others.

These are associated with a member of the blueberry family

“Determining Mycorrhizal Host
“The surest way to determine a mushroom’s mycorrhizal host with certainty is to discover physical evidence of mycorrhizae and support the identification of the rootlet and the fungal hyphae with DNA sequencing and morphological analysis. To my knowledge this painstaking process has only been undertaken in Leccinum once, by Osmundson and collaborators (2007), who provided molecular support for the mycorrhizal relationship between Comarostaphylis arbutoides and Leccinum monticola.”
