Only the head of this button was above ground. I excavated the bottom part. You can see a little red staining at the margin. Compare to these, which were growing mostly above ground. The red seems to be caused by exposure to air.


What a nice-looking button!

Can you recover it and put it in damp paper towels (top up) to see if it will open and produce the typical daucipes color?

Did you get from a “known site” for daucipes? Otherwise, would did you come to a possible determination?

Very best,
