Pisolithus tinctorius

Pisolithus tinctorius

Pisolithus tinctorius is a mycorrhizal fungus that is not at all picky about its plant and tree partnerships.

For this reason it is frequently used by foresters and gardeners to assist plant or tree growth (for impressive photos of plants and trees grown with and without the mycorrhizal support of fungi (Mycelium Running, by Paul Stamets [2005]). It also grows well in poor soil, sandy areas, and so on, making it an even more valuable fungus for plant life.

Pisolithus arrhizus is a synonym, according to many authors.
