Recognized by sight
Used references: NATS Field Guide To Selected North American Truffles and Truffle-like Fungi. Usually covered with orange-tinted rhizomorphs, but in very wet weather these may be eroded off. Should be associated with Pinus contorta, Laurel. This is one of Oregon’s most common truffle-like fungi, and is edible once the sand has been dusted off (better than washing). Slice it thin, dry it, and consume with a little salt and teriyaki sauce.
