It's Pilz (Mushroom) Season

#1 Post by Roldorf » Sat Aug 10, 2019 2:14 pm

It's been so dry this year we haven't seen any Fungi apart from the 'polypores' those very hard and tough mushrooms that grow on trees and can stand a lack of water.
Yesterday we found our first, yet to be identified will have to go back again tomorrow and get another sample as we put it in a pot to transport and it suffered a little (paper bags are best) :-

Spores:- Look a little like acorn cups. We didn't get a recognizable spore print, it could be that they are a little too dry.
It has rained here overnight and on and off most of the day so maybe some better samples tomorrow.

You have a Lycoperdon species of puffball.

Thanks for the identification. We never went back to get a better sample.

If you have other photos of the full shape I might be able to get to species. Just a FYI, when using photos to ID mushrooms you really need images of the cap and stem details and textures, nice details of underneath the cap for the gills or pores, etc, and frequently a spore print makes a huge difference.

Just in case you did not already know this.
