Collection location: Villa O’Higgins, Aisén, Chile [Click for map]

Who: Jason Hollinger (jason)

No specimen available

Giant thing more than 6" wide, pale soft flesh when immature. I saw only one such large puffball reach maturity, and it had yellowish-brown spores, but I couldn’t verify that it was the same thing for sure. This was sitting in the open in a pasture.
