Exploding Mushroom
    #6495434 - 01/25/07 12:15 PM (7 years, 9 months ago)

I was walking threw some woods the other day trying to find a new cow feild.....

In these woods a saw a little green mushroom... When I touched it, It exploded with some green dust all in my face and it burnt...

Im guesseing its some sort of defense mechanism....

Can someone tell me what this is?

Puffball. Not a defense mechanism, just the way it disperses spores.

o yea! i seethose things all the time. when i see patches of them, i always like to step all over them and watch the dust float into the air like smoke(i know its not very nice), nonetheless its kinda entertaining:shrug:

Probably an over aged puffball at that - usually when they are at the stage to where they readily release spores at the slightest touch - they are inedible (regardless of which species they are, so don't eat them!).

Well I never heard of puffballs spouting green spores into the wind. Here is one of a puffball exploding and disbursting its spores into the air.



And a 2nd one of larger puffballs. I have read of some in the 100 pound range.

I really have not seen any since I really do not go looking for puffballs. Sometimes I photograph them when I find them. Would rather find stinkhorns to photograph. They're really beautiful in their colors and brain designs.

Your pics are showing up now, very cool. The one with the spores coming out looks like a variety of earthstar.

"Well I never heard of puffballs spouting green spores into the wind. Here is one of a puffball exploding and disbursting its spores into the air"

It looks brown in the pic I posted, but it was greenish...
