Indicates Radiigera fuscogleba (hasn’t this has been renamed now?).

Schenella pityophilus spore mass would be brown with black delineating the periodioles.

Difficult to explain, but the photos in NATS Field Guide To Selected North American Truffles and Truffle-like Fungi have excellent photos which show much better than my explanation.

smells like creamed corn!
