yea, i know all about mycorrhizae.  i got confused, like i said, by
FAMILIES, which led me to believe
an incorrect strategy for shitakes.  i thought they were Amanitacea, but
they are, alas, Lepiotaceae, which
are pretty much all decomposers.  Amanitaceae members, for the most part,
are obligate mycorrhizals, and
the sole purpose of my post was moot since i had the wrong family.  sorry.

i really do understand quite a bit about the physiology and ecology of
fungi, especially as they relate to plants
my serious deficiencies, obviously, are in the taxonomy department, and i
promise to keep my mouth shut until
i have checked my info.  thanks
