Asterophora lycoperdoides was described in 1809, Nyctalis asterophora in 1838. Index Fungorum recognizes Asterophora lycoperdoides.

Nice find! I found some fungus similair to yours, although they always occured alone and I couldn't tell if they were growing on a mushroom or not. What do you think?
