Notes: Sarcosphaera coronaria was found growing in a habitat of montane mixed coniferous forest in the San Bernardino National Forest, San Bernardino Co., California.
Seen in the pictures around the fungi are debris representing Sugar Pine(Pinus lambertiana), White Fir(Abies concolor), Incense Cedar(Calocedrus decurrens), California Black Oak(Quercus kelloggii), and Yellow Pine…both Ponderosa Pine(Pinus ponderosus) and Jeffrey Pine(Pinus jeffreyi) are present nearby among other trees like Canyon Live Oak(Quercus chrysolepsis).
Sarcosphaera coronaria start out preferring to usually develop for the most part buried underground just breaking the surface hollow & ball-like then blooming open through maturity.
They can be without any real noticible stem or as seen here occasionally ranging to having a fairly well developed stem/stipe and seen growing either clustered together or solitary.
