Somewhat similar to T. spinoreticulatum

which should have small warts on the peridium to 1mm. I don’t see any warts though. Could peridium have been scrubbed clean? Parts of peridium seem to be missing.

Not T. gibbosum nor T. oregonense, I think: mostly because of the venae internae which nearly cross the sporocarp. But also both those species are species specific with Douglas-fir.

Alder of any variety is very unusual as a host tree for a Tuber.

Very interesting obs. Noah.

odor?
