in damp places

the stems often rot away — even in not so damp places. Weirder still is when you find them before the stipe elongates http://mycoportal.org/... These left me scratching my head.

Nice (and quick) catch!

Having only seen Tulostoma in the desert, and there always with some stem showing… I didn’t expect to see them in a heavily watered rosebed just looking like blobs.

I handled the specimen gently and quickly, ‘cause (a) I didn’t want to squish it and get spores everywhere, and (b) I’m not very interested in these :)… turns out even this guy has some stem left. Whoops!

What does the underside look like? This looks very much like a Tulostoma from above.
