Unfortunately I do not have a picture of the underside. But as it likely that the third observation is a different species, I have separated the pictures. The third obs. has the new link http://mushroomobserver.org/166067?q=1zJDM. The grayish-orange gleba and the mouth do support your vote towards Tulostoma., I agree. Thank you very much for pointing this out.

It would be helpful

to see the underside of P4142610.JPG. If it is a Tulostoma the socket will be visible on the underside. I’m rather sure it is a Tulostoma. The mouth is typical of many Tulostomas, and I can see fragments of a membranous exoperidium. Some species of Tulostoma e.g. pulchellum often lose their heads.

Tulostomas like to make friends and are often found growing near other species. Finding two or more species of Tulostoma growing in the same “patch” is not unknown. I’ve found many a collection to be mixed upon closer inspection.

Bob, different observations

…and therefore these could be different species despite the fact that they have been growing in the same area only a few meters apart. The fungus on image P4142610.JPG did not have stipe and should therefore not belong to Tulostoma. P4142611.JPG shows the gleba, depicting a cut of P4142610. I assume that all 3 observations belong to Lycoperdaceae. Thanks for your input.

Mixed collection?

Most of the images appear to be Lycoperdon. The image P4142610.JPG looks like a Tulostoma. P4142611.JPG is a ???
