Eye3 Eyes3
Recognized by sight: Based totally on the shape and growing in nearly pure pebbles. If this is Scleroderma, it would have a relatively thick peridium (thin), and the interior could be grayish or purple-black to purple-gray. Sclerodermas are all mycorrhizal, so there must have been a tree nearby. Perhaps a eucalyptus, maybe 120 feet tall, and within 120 feet of where this was found?

Yes, Daniel, the road along which these fungi were growing ran through forest with large karri and marri trees, all growing nearby.
