I was using Aurora keys, hence C. gigantea ID…should probably consult more current taxonomy before creating an observation. Thanks Irene. WCC, there is apparently a coastal variety occurring in grasslands that is not as warty as typical C. booniana from arid regions.

Booniana is found in arid climates, so probably not. Booniana typically is not as round as gigantea, and has larger warts.

Scaly surface

-could it be booniana? It’s not gigantea.
