Description: Generally speaking the false truffles (Hymenogastrales) are so rarely found in abundance that ecological observations on them are necessarily fragmentary, and studies of the variability of species within, as well as between, populations are fraught with difficulties caused on the one hand by inadequate information on basic features of the supposedly well known species, and on the other by a lack of agreement as to species concepts in the various groups in the family. In the course of attacking these problems the writer has had the opportunity of following the fruiting of many species in a single area over a period of years, and from extensive collections of a number of these, has had an excellent opportunity to study variation, seasonal occurrence, and substratal relationships. These investigations have been in progress since 1954 and have been concerned with the area in Idaho from Priest Lake southward to the mountains just north of Boise, particularly in the stream valleys draining westward into the Columbia River. McCall has served as a headquarters for the work in the Salmon River area.
