Observation 23391: Scleroderma Pers.

When: 2009-07-21

Collection location: Southeast Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

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.
