says of this fungus: "Peridium initially white, some becoming brownish from an overlay of brown fibrils, thick, fibrous-felty. Gleba initially white, at maturity brown to olive brown; odor and taste mild.

So like most Rhizopogons, this is edible (provided it doesn’t stain blue or red), like the related Suillus, Boletus, Chalciporus, etc.
