Scientific name: Tuber mesentericum Vittadini
Common name: Ordinary black truffle or Bagnoli truffle; in Abruzzo it is called the Phoenician allacid truffle due to the strong smell of phenol which prevails over the sulphurous one.
Carpoforo: the color of the peridium is black with small, polygonal and depressed warts; globular or slightly lobed, with a more or less wide basal hollow which in section makes it reniform in appearance.
Gleba: yellowish or gray-brown in color, it is furrowed by white and wavy veins. It gives off a faint perfume.
spore:elliptic brownish-yellow, large, imperfectly alveolar, grouped in 1-3 per ax.
Edibility, habitat and observations
Relationship with the surrounding plant environment: symbiote mushroom.
Ripens from September to early May. In some cases carpophores have an intense and unpleasant scent reminiscent of iodoform; however, this perfume is very volatile and dissolves easily during use in the kitchen.
