Puffballs growing in D6B. This one was right by the D6A/D6B border, a few meters on the B side where the woods gets much darker — denser, and with the tree mix dominated by Balsam fir. There were a few scattered along the path — right in the path — including this one, for about ten meters, but none that I saw elsewhere in D6B (or anywhere else in that day’s travels).

I always appreciate it when you change the name on old observations. Keep up the good work.

you said in your other observation that it looked similar to other species that had been called L. marginatum. It wasn’t, this one wasn’t and a couple of other people’s observations weren’t…

…why is someone going through all of my past L. marginatum observations and voting against that ID all of a sudden?
