would be Elaphomyces muricatus complex, since spores are not included. The complex includes species which have pockets of spores embedded within the peridium (outer shell). Alexander H. Smith once called Elaphomyces muricatus and E. granulatus the most common truffles of the Northern Hemisphere. I see no reason to dispute that.
In parts of the world, Elaphomyces concentrate radioactive Cesium, which make this truffle genus important to bioremediation.
