This collection of Melanogaster turned up under a plum tree but was probably actually associated with nearby Oregon White Oak trees. The odor was nauseous-sweet but I was able to talk my youngest son into trying it with me. It was most delicious with a delightful licorice after-taste. I am still waiting for a confirmation on the identity of the collection but it seems to fit Melanogaster euryspermus, a widely distributed and fairly common Black Veined False Truffle.
