Melanogaster tuberiformis, a false truffle of the Melanogaster genus.

A false truffle or a Hymenogastrale is any species of fungus that has underground fruiting bodies that produce basidiocarps resembling the true truffles of genus Tuber.[1][2] While rodents such as squirrels eat a wide variety of false truffle species, many are considered toxic or otherwise inedible by humans and only a few are sought after as food.[3][4][5][6][7][8]
