sure, but the ball on the bottom of the stem in these pictures is made out of dirt and mycelium with part of a stick in it, not a truffle.

I see them.

Don’t know what this is, then. Elaphocordyceps is out. Still need to determine what it is growing on, though. Does something other than Elaphocordyceps grow on Elaphomyces?

mushroom has gills and a well defined cap and stem. The last image might make it seem otherwise, but it’s also pretty blurry. All of the pictures are of the same mushroom.

Elaphocordyceps. May be growing on an Elaphomyces truffle. Would like to see the Elaphomyces presented as a separate observation. These can fruit year-round, but are more common now. There can be hundreds or thousands of these. Could easily be some nearby, but have to example the soil carefully. They are easy to miss.
