Recognized by sight: This is a relatively small Tuber species, locally abundant at Paul’s, under certain trees. Not widespread, and never reaches an inch in diameter: the dimensions of Tuber gibbosum. May be immature T. aniae, but that species is so infrequently identified, I hesitate to even suggest it until I have a professional mycologist examine the sporocarps. Easily found 20-30 of these, although seldom find more than 8-10 with any individual tree, and usuall less.
