ABSTRACT

An undescribed Tuber species was collected in Morelos between México City and Cuernavaca in a subtropical Pinus-Quercus forest. This new species Tuber guzmanii Trappe and Cázares is named in honor of Prof. Gastón Guzmán for his outstanding contributions to knowledge of Mexican fungi, his pioneering interest in hypogeous fungi, and his monographic work on the genera Psilocybe and Scleroderma. T. guzmanii is only the fifth Tuber species to be reported from México.
