Observation 63723: Geastrum pectinatum Pers.
When: 2011-02-20
No herbarium specimen

Notes: located under a grove of Thuja Plicata.

Temp/weather- warm, sunny upper 40’s-low 50’s.

From the literature in Arora’s book it indicates these are usually a Southwestern species. As far as I can tell(and can key) these are pectinatum. Very interesting little specimens- much smaller than G. saccatum (about 4-6cm. base and 1-3cm ball cap).
