Observation 25562: Lycoperdon Pers.

When: 2009-09-21

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

On wood in Zone 48; clearly old fruit-bodies. One I poked gave off a puff of brownish spores. The spines that come off in patches point to Lycoperdon.

There were a half-dozen or more (not very many more, though) puffballs on the same chunk of wood, singly and in occasional pairs like the one photographed.
