Notes: Photographed Nov. 5, 2001. Alpova diplophloeus is a hypogeous fungi associated exclusively with Red alder (Alnus rubra). It is especially esteemed by flying squirrels and voles in the Pacific Northwest. I disagree with Field Guide to North American Truffles, which states this fungus is “too small and bland to have much culinary value.” After freezing, this fungus produces a strong aroma similar to Bailey’s Irish Cream. It is certainly attractive to me.
