Summary: In general, true.

In specific, E. flammicorona lacks any latex which is common in E. lactiflua. The peridium of E. flammicorona rapidly degrades in maturity, which also varies from E. lactiflua. NATS Field Guide to Selected North American Truffles and Truffle-Like Fungi notes for Endogone flammicorona: “…peridium thin and delicate in youth, collapsing by maturity; spores large enough to be easily seen with a hand lens.”

Also, the photos in NATS Field Guide clearly show the reddish gleba of mature spores in mass, compared to the golden-colored E. lactiflua spores.

Summary: spores key to ID

to distinguish from E. lactiflua, you need to examine the spores.
