Who: Tim Sage (T. Sage)
Sorry for the non-documentary photo, but it figures that a 6.5cm truffle comes into the clinic the day I forget my camera. Photo by Kim Traverse. Just wanted to document the find!
Brought into the PSMS ID clinic by Giovanni.

Had to be with Douglas-fir, as that is species specific with T. gibbosum. When I went to Bellingham to check out hypogeous fungi with a club there several years ago, I was mostly amazed at the amount of cobbles everywhere, probably left-over from glaciation.
Interesting in that I find T. gibbosum most commonly with deep soils with a “fluffy” consistency, often with quantities of humus present as well.
Where NOT to dig, and dug a hole to show it. When he did, he saw a bunch of truffles.
He had two above 5-6 cm, and a bag of small ones. He found them while landscaping for a client.
Several 8 oz. specimens have been found on land which had limestone added. And at least one monster 1 lb. specimen was found in Vancouver, WA under a compost pile.
No mention of the happy dance?
