Even when you have a good idea of what this is, it still surprises me.
I believe this is a species novum Scleroderma. The upper peridium is reddish brown, with some scales yellowish. Sporocarp has a distinctive, large root-like extension that DOES NOT stain when broken from much deeper rhizomorphs. When the sporocarp is sliced through the base, within 30 seconds the base turns chrome-yellow! This obs. found with Quercus palustris.
