Too young to have mature spores … yet. Nonetheless the size of the sporocarps, association with Douglas-fir and venae externae all strongly suggest Tuber oregonense: what is now called Oregon White truffle. The common name still stumps me: It was first collected by Dr. H. H. Harkness near San Francisco, CA in 1878. When mature, the gleba is a light to dark brown in color. Only immature material has a mostly white peridium. Apparently more commonly found in Oregon, Washington and British Columbia than in California, where it has rarely been collected since the 1800’s.
