Observation 3794: Kjeldsenia aureispora W. Colgan, Castellano & Bougher
When: 1991-04-11

Notes: The truffle Kjeldsenia aureispora was named in honor of SOMA co-founder, Dr. Chris Kjeldsen. It is an unusual genus that has a white outside peridium that stains yellow then turns reddish brown upon handling. It is placed in the family Cortinariaceae and is thought to be close to Hymenogaster. This is a photo of the holotype that was collected on Hwy 20 in Mendocino County, CA and published by one of Dr. Kjeldsen’s former students, Dr. Wes Colgan III.
