Observation 203655: Geopora Harkn.
When: 2015-04-28
( 1829m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This truffle was found at about 6000 ft. off Mormon Emigrant Trail in the Eldorado National Forest. The trees within about 75 ft. of the find included douglas fir, true fir, and cedar. It was growing just under the surface. I first noticed a small bump hoping to find B. rex-veris. It measured 7.4 cm on the long axis, and 5.5 cm on the short. There was virtually no odor, but was cold both times I tried. I attempted to get coordinates, but was unable to pin point the location on Google Earth. The material was sent to Michael Castellano who was kind enough to offer this tentative ID.

On the young side but a fine example of G. gilkeyae. Unpublished combination from the variety Geopora cooperi ver. gilkeyae. Easily distinguished from the var. cooperi by spore size.
