Indian_Pipes
Indian Pipes, aka Ghost Flowers   (Monotropa uniflora)
Not a fungus, but an herbaceous perennial plant.   It lacks chlorophyll but gets its
nutrients through a mutually beneficial relationship with a fungus in the soil.





Pinesap
Pinesap, aka Dutchman's Pipe   (Hypopitys monotropa, syn. Monotropa hypopitys)
The multi-flowered cousin of the previous plant, Pinesap is also a myco-heterotroph,
getting its food through parasitism upon fungi rather than photosynthesis.
