I observed this eruption for 3 days and nothing was happening, so I thought it must be a puff ball. When I cut it open, it turned out to be an Amanita “egg”. By the timing and location I would guess Amanita lanei, (but it is just a rough guess based on what I remember seeing, but not identifying in previous years.) I know the locals here eat these spring fruiting Amanitas. Notice the gills are pinkish in this spec. growing under old growth douglas fir.
