appear to be left and right sides of the photo. Has basal tuft of what may be mycelia.

Interesting specimen, Ian.

Not a truffle I believe. But similar.

Truffles have venae externae, or external veins. They also have venae internae, or internal veins. I do not see veins at either location. But fungus does appear to be solid, has no visible loculates (chambers). Got me stumped, Ian. Need to have detailed appearance/notes included for this specimen.
