thank you for identifying my truffle pictures. I just sent my truffle collection off to Jim Trappe last Friday! I’m excited to hear what he has to say about the other finds. I’ll post some more for you to look at. Also, I will be able to send those Radiigera spores to you this week.

appears to be quite common this dry year. If you are looking for more, look for seldom-used graveled roads, with seedlings coming up in the center. Often this forms small mushrumps in the sparse duff.
