Thanks for your comments, but I should mention that these were picked and simply tossed in a bag for the drive home. Can it be that the ornamentations were sloughed off during transit and before these photos were taken? Also if it is not L. perlatum, I don’t believe it is L. pyriforme because it was terrestrial. I am familar with some speies of Lycoperdon, and L perlatum is my best bet. Whatwould you call it? Thanks again. Phil
