Observation 180456: Reticularia lycoperdon Bull.
When: 2014-09-26
Collection location: Baring, Maine, USA [Click for map]
No herbarium specimen

Notes: It sure looks like Scleroderma which can occur on rotted wood from what I’ve read. I could find nothing in the genus that has these beautiful colors. Any ideas would be appreciated.
