Truffle hunting is sometimes hit or miss. I have searched for this truffle for many years, but never have found it. Then a local mushroom wholesaler asked me to look at a truffle a mushroom hunter had brought in. There it was: Leucogaster citrina. Pale yellow-orange to white peridium; transluscent, slightly yellow-tinted sterile veins on the interior, and dark brown where mature spores had formed in the gleba. Easy to recognize if not to find! Plus the aroma of citrus and cocount: hard to pass up, and harder not to just pop in your mouth and eat. No wonder so many animal species in the Pacific Northwest gorge on truffles!
