you have a lot of pine trees in your area, right? There must be Rhizopogon especially when I consider that many “new” species have been described from the Iberian peninsula. They are quite common. Look at slopes of forest ways after rainfall or between the roots of pine trees. Often they are not hypogaeous but pop up at least to the half of the fruitbody. Also look where deer and other game is rooting up the soil. They often look for such fungi. You can often find Elaphomyces this way when there is no Elaphocordyceps present.

(awake) in finding Rhizopogon here, the name is always on my mind… how do you notice them? I look, look… and see nothing :)
