Observation 71089: Scleroderma citrinum Pers.
When: 2011-07-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Rather large, oddly shaped specimen (about the size of a baseball) fruiting beneath a Birch tree in apartment complex parking lot. Decorative bark is red cedar. Thought this was an exposed root from the tree at first glance.

Indicators: Dark purple gleba inside- thick, hard skin(almost woody) on outer casing.

Not edible.

This is the second time I’ve collected these beneath decorative birch trees here in Olympia, WA.

Temp: 80’s sunny- very little rain this last week.
