Yellow stalked puffball

Calostoma lutescens

Description:

Interesting fungi I found in the woods. They felt rubbery. White spores shot out when I squeezed the one that wasn't already burst.

Don't know about your neckofthewoods but they would be unusual here. We don't have them at all. I've been hoping to find an similar Aussie species for years now though (with no luck). This species is much more colorful than ours but structurally the same. Envy!

Thank you Mark! Are they unusual? I've never seen one before, but maybe I just wasn't looking.
