Notes: My 4 year old daughter found this in our backyard, we had no idea what it was & at first I thought it was a strange bee hive of some sort but on closer look it was obviously some sort of fungus. Intrigued, I searched the internet & found this site which lead me to the answer!
I don’t know how rare it is, or strange of an occurrence. But I do know that it’s rained for a week, today was the first day we really went outside to play. I’ve read that they pop up after moist conditions, so I’m thinking that must be why.

I live in arid eastern New Mexico, US. Lysurus periphragmoides has appeared only twice to my knowledge in my proximity during the 20 years I have lived here so far, only after a very rare series of 4-5 days of continuously misty, rainy or very high humidity weather.
