A new Tuber species, T. sinoaestivum, is described from southwestern China based on morphological and molecular analyses. The new species, which was found fruiting in association with Pinus armandii, has been previously misidentified as T. aestivum (=T. uncinatum). Although morphologically quite similar, T. sinoaestivum differs from the European species by more globose ascospores ornamented with a shallower reticulum. ITS sequence analyses show only 92% similarity between the two species, further supporting the taxonomic separation of T. sinoaestivum from T. aestivum.
