Collection location: Larch Mountain, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]
Originally known to me as Thaxterogaster pinque from collections taken from same location and submitted to Dr. James Trappe of the North American Truffling Society for positive identification. Sporocarps generally less than 2 inches across the top, most commonly barely 1 inch; stipe present; gills dark and convoluted; barely erumpent, edible by slugs and perhaps spread by them. Mycorrhizal with Noble fir (Abies procera), Western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla), and Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii). Mostly found near Noble fir in my experience. Odor strong, rank/disagreeable, metallic; no latex but slimy with the least bit of moisture. Total sporocarp height including hypogeous stipe: 3 inches maximum.
