Observation 24761: Scleroderma Pers.

When: 2009-08-26

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These were near a junction of paths in Zone 13 close to Zone 12 (but not Zone 11). There were a few at the edge of the curving inside corner of the junction. They were too tough to pierce with the twig I used to poke and prod them, but I was able to scrape the outer skin off one to reveal an inner yellow-white layer of tougher material.

It has the “pigskin” look of a Scleroderma but without seeing the spore mass I can’t be certain.

They were small, a bit over 1cm across for the bigger ones.
