SPOROCARP: about 1 inch diameter (2.5 cm), minutely warted; PERIDIUM: light tan to yellowish-brown, some pink highlights, with apical pore leading into the gleba; GLEBA: complex, labyrinthine, brain-like, still with centralized chamber not yet filled, indicating sporocarp not at maturity; white venae internae,with some flesh-colored areas near peridium. A very common mycorrhizal fungi associated with Douglas-fir. Last photo is a large animal excavation under an adjacent Willamette Valley Ponderosa pine. Most animal excavations are much small than this, which was about 3 inches across the hole and nearly 3 inches deep. I’d guess this is from a squirrel, which may have been excavating a larger truffle, perhaps a large Geopora cooperi.
