Used references: Field Guide to North American Truffles, by Matt Trappe, Frank Evans, and James Trappe; c. 2007. Tuber lyonii is the earlier, preferred name. An interesting Tuber species, which to my taste is very similar to fresh corn and milk. It blends wonderfully with a simply corn chowder made of corn, potatoes, milk and small quantities to Tuber. I like it a lot!
