Identify a mushroom

Asked April 23, 2018, 1:10 PM EDT

Do you have any idea what kind of fungus this is. I live in the keno area and raked it up in the yard. The dog may have gotten part of it. This is half of it. Thanks

This is a species of truffle, an underground mushroom. I couldn't tell which species it is without microscopic examination. I always advise not to eat any fungus without knowing exactly what species it is.
