Truffles? #851175

Asked September 25, 2023, 1:30 PM EDT

Hello, I live in rural Muskingum county. For several years there has been this fungi ball that appears from underground. They have the texture of a fungi inside. I am wanting to know if they are truffles or what exactly they are? Would I be able to have it identified if I took one into my local extension office?

Expert Response

I would be unable to identify mushrooms at the Extension Office in Muskingum County.  However, I would suggest consulting:

Wild Mushrooms | Ohioline (

and also consider the references provided in that fact sheet for more resources on Mushroom ID.
