R. brunneiniger seems to enjoy hot long summers followed by relatively mild falls. I’ve been finding it here as well: mostly in Clackamas County, Oregon at higher elevations. This fall, it appears this is one of the most common Rhizopogons this year.

Alas, no specimen exists.

This was part of a wine and cheese-y thing put on by the well to do of Eagle, Colorado, headquartered at some fancy restaurant. Low level of science and no vouchering. Good to have the ID though. Thanks, Daniel.

May be a first collection from Colorado.

Field Guide only supports CA and OR collections. Pretty sure of this though. Said to be edible and pretty good. I’d choose to experiment only with younger specimens, though.

Congratulations, Danny!

The blackening peridium which eventually turns nearly shiny in old age, and the rather dark gleba becoming light brown in the center all are indications of R. brunneiniger.
