Desert truffles, Terfezia and allies, are mycorrhizal with Helianthemum 
spp (Cistaceae) and probably other plants. There is some literature on 
this, but I dont have references handy. Not al ectomycorrhizal hosts are 
trees, or even woody plants, e.g. Kobresia myrosoides (Cyperaceae) is 
ectomycorrhizal and a sedge relative.
