Terfezia is a genus of truffle-like fungi within the Pezizaceae family. Terfezia species are commonly known as desert truffles. Some authorities consider this the type genus of the family Terfeziaceae, although phylogenetic analysis suggests that it nests within the Pezizaceae. The Dictionary of the Fungi (10th edition, 2008) suggests that the genus contains 12 species. A recent (2011) publication used molecular analysis to show that the American Terfezia species had been incorrectly classified, and moved Terfezia spinosa and Terfezia longii to Mattirolomyces and Stouffera, respectively; as a result, no Terfezia species are known to exist in North America.

  • Terfezia (Tul. & C. Tul.) Tul. & C. Tul., 1851 è un genere di funghi appartenente alla famiglia Pezizaceae. Le specie appartenenti a questo genere hanno il carpoforo a forma di tubero, il peridio liscio e gibboso, la carne (gleba) bianca e compatta che a maturità presenta molteplici cavità alveolari.
