Observation 11767: Scleroderma areolatum Ehrenb.

When: 2008-10-01

Collection location: Southeast Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Fd. near both Lodgpole pine (Pinus contorta) and Eastern red oak (Quercus palustra). The material found with Lodgpole pine is more yellowish on the peridium than the flesh-colored peridium of the oak. Both are brownish to brownish-gray in the gleba, and powdery, as well as soft. A hard gleba would indicate S. cepa or S. laeve, which in my area are a little later in the season most years.
