Notes: Found in soil of a very weedy, poor potato garden. Look like 5-10 mm, soft white balls in the upturned dirt. No nearby trees. Three 20’ tall fir and spruce live ca.30’ from the garden; >50’ tall mixed woods live 75’ from garden. Distinctive smell. We have lots of the dirt mounds made by moles, in the adjacent lawn. Spores subglobose, brown, large, not measured, I estimate about 30 microns across, with thick walls, coarse ornamentation, and a short hyaline projection from each end.

and Truffle-like Fungi, Hymenogaster subalpinus has spores that are 20-30 × 14-16 microns, roughened, narrowly citriform with a truncate-cupped base. The spores here are at least similar.
