The second photo is a nice representative of Scleroderma, do you mind if I use it for a publication? I’ll add it to a figure and send it to you so you know how it’s being used. And give you appropriate credit for the photo of course!

very nice photos of varying thicknesses of the peridium, Herbert.

Normally mature S. citrinum has a rather thin peridium, except for the basal attachment. In material where there is considerably thicker peridium yet purple spore-mass, specimens are not yet completely mature.
