Observation 27568: Vascellum lloydianum A.H. Sm.
When: 2009-10-30
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Abundant fruiting in grassy areas near White fir, but well-mulched. Peridium at least 2-layered: buff-brown on top, which erodes near maturity to expose the more whitish to brown-tinted second layer. In Arora, said to be the most common puffball of Oregon by the late Alexander H. Smith, and showing the nearly nondescript sterile base (the white area near the base) which seems pleated and gathered. I would have called it V. pratense had I not read the entire entry in Arora.
