Observation 23391: Scleroderma Pers.
When: 2009-07-21
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Some Sclerodermas start underground, eventually pushing or eroding or eventually extending to barely epigeous to nearly completely epigeous, usually with a strong cluster of rhizomorphic threads at the base. While the powdery/fibrous gleba strongly suggests S. areolatum, as well as collection of same nearby, this particular specimen was found completely covered (see photos). The top of the sporocarp was easily 1/2 inch deep under ornamental bark dust. Also as indicated by the photos, it if quite young and still immature.
