Peziza erini

New and seldom encountered

This newly described, latex-producing truffle is a denizen of blue oak woodlands in north central California. Collected only twice, it appears to be rather rare, or perhaps it only fruits sporadically.  Closest relatives differ morphologically from P. erini, and are distributed regionally and globally.
