Observation 21088: Morganella purpurascens (Berk. & M.A. Curtis) Kreisel & Dring
When: 2009-05-16
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I found these what appear to be (deflated puff balls of some description) residing in the soil still remaining on a recently fallen softwood. There were a large number growing closely together in the area where the soil existed. They were all about 15mm in length. I also turned one over for viewing.(43664).
(In one of the images it appears that they have a wood like stipe or are attached to the ends of broken roots.(43663). I have only included these images for interest. I thought they may have been nematodes at first but there seems to be some indications that they were puff balls. I did find some puff balls later in the day that were better formed . I will load them later.
