Went truffle hunting at a Douglas-fir stand in northern Clark County,
WA today. Found the following:

Tuber gibbosum var. autumnale
Tuber gibbosum var. gibbosum
Tuber sps., possibly T. pacificum or T. annae
Several Amanita sps, possibly A. rubescens.
Clavulina cristata
Clitocybe sclerotoidea
Rhizopogon sps., near R. villosulus

Was surprised to see that several of the largest truffles were T.
gibbosum var. gibbosum: usually too early in the year for these to be
very common. Many located on the edge of the property near a pasture,
and these were found within the roots of fescue and other grass sps.
Hard work, but worth the effort when these 2-4 inch diameter truffles
start showing up. Will try to hold some of them for the forage on Jan.
19 at Paul Bishop's (see elsewhere in this ng for more info).
