Notes: Three specimens growing in a cluster in pure sand next to pitch pines. The largest of these (claimed by another collector) was 7-8 cm in diameter — like a small potato!
The cut flesh had a sharp, pungent and unpleasant chemical odor.

It’s a reference to Alexander H. Smith, Helen V. Smith, and Nancy Smith-Weber’s “How to know the Non-Gilled Fungi”. It includes some 200+ Rhizopogon species, some of which have now been renamed (I think there’s 120 species now).
Yes, I certainly will try to get through it. Again.
I don’t have the reference. Do you mind doing the consulting yourself? :) Let me know if need the specimens.
confirmed. Definately Rhizopogon. But which one? Time to consult Smith, Smith & Weber.
