Abstract

Two new truffles species, Tuber alboumbilicum and Tuber pseudobrumale are described based on collections from Southwest China. T. alboumbilicum is characterized by its white umbilicate ascomata. T. pseudobrumale is similar to T. pseudoexcavatum, but differs in spinulose ascospores. Molecular analysis also supported T. alboumbilicum and T. pseudobrumale as two new species. T. alboumbilicum grows in mycorrhizal association with Tsuga chinensis at elevations of 2,710 m. T. pseudobrumale grows in mycorrhizal association with Pinus yunnanensis in limestone soils, and has a pleasant aroma and is good edible.
