Collection location: Fairmont Springs, Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Phil Yeager (gunchky)

No specimen available

Found in grass about 60’ from the edge of a pond. Interior white, and have eaten this species many times, but am not a big fan of bland tasting “puffballs”. Almost forgot to mention that it was six inches or better in diameter. I still have it in my fridge. Don’t ask me why.
