This is a newly discovered species of Leucangium, recently named L. brunneum. It has been
collected occasionally over the last 10 years, but in 2004 was fruiting in abundance. It is found in young
Douglas-fir stands in the western Cascades and the Coast Range. It has a reddish-brown exterior with
a granular texture and a grey marbled interior, and is being called the "Oregon Brown Truffle" in the field.
They are typically 1-2 inches in diameter, and their scent can be strongly garlicky! We would like to
learn the extent of its range, so if you find some kindly send us a sample with a data card!
