Need several sporocarps in different stages of maturity if possible.

Capitate columella

also found in Pyrenogaster. Pyrenogaster is placed among the Geatraceae. Pyrenogaster differs from the obs. in having spores formed in peridioles, similar to Pisolithus arrhizus (formerly Pisolithus tinctorius). Both Pyrenogaster and Pisolithus are terrestrial. While I can’t give a good location for placement of this obs., logically it might also be associated with Geatraceae, perhaps within Geastrum.

This obs. appears to have a central capitate columella.

The raised area above the central sterile base appears to be an interior stipe (columella) which suddenly enlarges into the gleba (capitate).
