I’ll try to get it under a microscope soon.

Start it drying now.

Needs to be sliced in 1/4" slabs, then dried bone dry. Let’s get that done first.

Likely Gautiaria parksiana, which fruits year-round. (Source: Nats Field Guide To Selected North American Truffles and truffle-like Fungi, by Trappe, Evans and Trappe, c. 2005) What you see as interior veins is a columella: a column of sterile tissue that penetrates the gleba: a vestigial stipe.

collected indeed

It is currently at my house. Not to sure what to do with it at this point, however. I have a dehydrator at home so I can slice and dehydrate and provide it to someone with a microscope and who knows more about what they’re doing.

Not Tuber, but a good guess.

Tuber is characterisized by having external veins and internal veins. This has both.

Tuber also has mostly solid interior. This has chambers. Locules are present.

Hope you collected this, Christopher. Gautieria is very rare from January.
