Observation 46199: Glomus Tul. & C. Tul.

When: 2010-06-01

Collection location: Creswell, Lane Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

I’m not certain of this identification. I have never found Glomus before, and this may be just a very old Endogone, which Glomus sometimes resembles. Glomus often fruits earlier in the year (April-May), and Endogone can be found year-round. Sporocarp well-eaten, can’t determine whether the liquid visible inside is from rain or from an exudate; specimen rather older. Associated with Douglas-fir and Ponderosa pine, with Oregon White oak, Madrone, poison oak, and some forbes within reach of this sporocarp. Being submitted for identification by Dr. Matt Trappe. Will post later what final decision is.

which this might be. Specimens in the NATS photopack of common truffles appear to be up to 1.5 inches in diameter, or slightly larger than this.

Looks a bit large for Glomus.
