Tuber mesentericum (50 gr)
also known as the black truffle of Bagnoli Irpino

It has an aspect (ascocarpus) of rounded or irregular shape, almost always presents an evident basal depression which, in section, gives it the typical reniform appearance. The Peridium is brownish-black at maturity, is warty, with rather small pyramidal warts, with sharp edges and without transversal striations. Finally, the Gleba is white, then greyish, finally gray-brown or brown, with immutable white veins, very numerous, rather large and tortuous, with labyrinthine pattern that recalls the gut convolutions.

Appearance and dimensions
Generally small, it is rarely bigger than a hen's egg.
