Observation 192104: Lycoperdon pyriforme Schaeff.
When: 2014-12-06
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

This fungus was found growing gregariously on a rotten log in Burr Oak Woods, Hobart, IN. It smelled strongly of fresh grass, and the surface of the fruiting body felt rough to the touch due to little light brown bumps all over it. When the fungus was taken from its substate, mycelial strings ran from the bottom of the fungus to the log, indicating rhizomorphs. The globular fruiting body is light yellow to tan, with a size of 3.0 cm across, and it felt springy when lightly pressed. The spore print was olive in color.
