But habitat, location, and peridium seem consistent with R. roseolus. Might also be R. vulgaris according to Field Guide to North American Truffles, but I believe the rose-staining rhizomorphs are a close match. Photo in above show cream to yellowish gleba, but could be slightly immature in this collection. Slicing several sporocarps to show variations in gleba coloration helps in identification. Above also claims this is synonymous (=) to Rhizopogon rubescens now. Anyone else heard that?
