Collection location: Moon Lake Park, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Phil Yeager (gunchky)

No specimen available

Small, shiny, greyish-brown puffball with thin skin, some cracks and a pore opening. Found in mixed woods. At first glance I always think that these are dried “oak apple galls.” The interior is filled with black spores which are easily released.
