Observation 20824: Clathrus ruber P. Micheli ex Pers.

When: 2009-05-04

Collection location: Sausalito, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: AlanWeiss

No specimen available

When I found the first one I thought this was a decomposing toy ball but after closer inspection I realized this is a (strange) mushroom.

Found growing on landscaping bark near a freeway off-ramp – is this species an import or is it normally found locally (this is the first one I’ve ever seen)?
