Observation 55211: Scleroderma Pers.

Several of these were found in a cleared area on the edge of the forest tree-line.
Although the specimen shown, has an intriguing coloured centre, several of the other specimens I cut were yellowish in the centre. I put this down to the stage of maturity.

Comment for Jonathan M

Jonathan, Thanks for the comment. I have two listed species of Scleroderma, (cepa and paradoxum).
paradoxum is a possibility but the outer skin of my image is similar to the naming given. I think paradoxum has spines also. This specimen was although having an uneven exterior, it was devoid of spines.

for me it a scleroderma?
