-Each specimen displayed in the picture was found growing alone but scattered throughout the area.
-These were found growing next to Marram grass, and they were associated with the soil.
-The specimen’s outer layer was white and had a surface that appeared to have what I would describe as “spikes”. Michael Kuo and Andrew S. Methven referred to these ornmentations as “wartish”.
-This white outer layer was also delicate to the touch. This layer would crumble and fall of the specimen as chunks, revealing the dark middle portion.
-Overall, the structure was roundish with a very small base.
-When it was pressed, medium brown-colored spore dust shot out of the structure.
