Metasequoia or Ginko mycorrhizae

A few years ago a grove of the previously thought to be extinct
Metasequoia was discovered in China. Does anybody have info on their
mycorrizal or host-specific parisitic associates? How about Ginko
biloba, another ancient species?

   What does the fossil record contain regarding higher fungi? I
realize that fungi do not lend themselves well to fossilization but
surely there must be a few instances discovered. Any and all related
info on the subject will be welcome. Thanks.
