Sorry, Darvin. Just found the enlarged photo, and the foreground is of a different Rhizopogon species, NOT T. gibbosum.

R. ochraceorubens AND Tuber gibbosum

While the specimen in the background may be R. ochraceorubens (I have not found that species to date) the specimen in the foreground if definately a Tuber species, NOT a Rhizopogon. I suspect, consider the date of collection and location, that this is a slightly immature specimen of Tuber gibbosum.
