Observation 55755: Scleroderma areolatum Ehrenb.

This rather large and soft Scleroderma is distinctive because of the fine cracks in the upper peridium (areolate) which break in age exposing the gleba to wind and rain dispersal. Quite common in our area, as well as strongly suspected of being poisonous! While no microscopy has been done on this yet, I feel confident in this identification. One of the key features is the soft, rather spongy gleba. Provided by Adrien Beyerle.
