You're right, McCall, ID  (Blue Mountains Biome bordering Northern Rocky
Mts. Biome) is where we have our forays.  Many hypogaeous species have a
type locality close by, especially Smith's Rhizopogons.  Our problem is that
we have no one in the club that is proficient in this group.

I'd love to have you, or one of your colleagues come to our Spring or fall
forays.  We don't have anyone who even knows how to look for them.  Sure, we
look for digging or 'humping'  in the duff, but usually get sidtracked by
something on the surface.  If you wanted to come over, you might stir up
some interest.

See you at Diamond Lake, I hope,
