Observation 228: Lycoperdon Pers.

Identified to genus by sight. In further reading I haven’t found any species that combine the features of a distinct pink tone seen when young, the dark black dot visible on some of the mushrooms and the clustered growing habit. In Arora’s Mushroom Demystified L. marginatum seems like the best match, but I don’t see any evidence of the peridium coming off in sheets in the older specimen.
