T. fulvocastaneum is distributed in deciduous oak forests and in evergreen Castanopsis forests in southwestern Japan. The fruit bodies appear in a ring and the mycelial layer occurs in mineral soil horizons poor in organic matter. Morphologically the shiro in the Castanopsis forest resembles that of T. matsutake. The shiros are distributed mainly on flat or sloping red soil with high humidity.
