A Brief Overview of the Systematics, Taxonomy, and Ecology of the Tuber rufum Clade

TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of nuc rDNA internal transcribed spacer and nuc 28S rDNA regions showed that specimens from Spain and Corsica form a monophyletic group closely related to T. rufum, whereas Mexican specimens form a clade within the T. lyonii species complex.
