This is an excellent example of the species!

1: The spines can be easily seen here to be different sizes.
2: It appears you excavated around the base, exposing that is it truly terrestrial.
3: Captured some of the habitat, which appears to be a humid-hardwood forest.
4: The graduation of the color of spines on the exoperidium is well shown.
