This is the most recent, and the last specimen I have seen collected of Geopora cooperi on Paul Bishop’s. The felt-like reddish-brown hairs surround the gleba attract soil particles, which cling to the sporocarp, making it largely invisible in the ground. It was Henry Pavilek’s favorite truffle, which he liked to saute lightly in butter. He claimed it tasted like bacon. Aroma is pleasant and a little like ham to my nose. So bacon would be a close approximation, I suppose.
