most collections from Oregon will be Tuber gibbosum. The peridium should be whitish when imnmature, yellowish when mature. The spores will be similar. The earliest I know of Tuber gibbosum fruiting was in December at Vancouver, WA by Janet Lingren; the latest I believe I collected from July 4 at Paul Bishop’s Jones Creek Tree Farm. Tuber gibbosum is a larger (sporocarps can be over 1 lb.), have a darker gleba (coffee-au-lait or darker), and usuallly are found later than Tuber oregonense, which is a much earlier species.
