Tuber sinoalbidum and T. polyspermum — new species from China
Two new Tuber species from China are described and illustrated. Tuber sinoalbidum is recognized by its white mid to large sized ascocarps and spinulose-reticulate ascospores, while T. polyspermum is characterized by Tuber lyonii-like ascospores and smaller brown ascomata. A molecular study based on the ITS sequences supports the erection of the two new species.
