Thanks for your expertise EduHerNav.
It's not Geastrum triplex :) it's definetly a Astraeus hygrometricus :) look at the "hairy" endoperidial and the shape of the rays and also the mouth.
G floriforme maybe?
Geastrum or Astraeus, though...
Definitely an earthstar mushroom of some kind. Usually they are symbiotes that grow around the roots of plants.
Hi Ruby, investigate Earthstars for this one, I think ...
