Observation 27571: Scleroderma areolatum Ehrenb.

When: 2009-10-30

Seen at: Ventura Park, Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Note thick, crust-like rhizomorphs on peridium. Not typical of S. areolatum in my experience, but gleba matched description. Associated with Quercus palustris: quite common in this area. This was the only specimen that had rhizomorphs away from the basal attachment.
