Puff Ball ID help plz
    #11308376 - 10/23/09 09:48 PM (8 years, 27 days ago)

Habitat:
Open grass yard of a church. Grass did have surface moss in it and a few other mushrooms.

Gills:
none.

Stem:
none

Cap:
none



I have heard that all puffballs are edible when they are still solid white inside. Is this true or is it like all other shrooms as it depends on species? Thank you in advance. :smile:

Spore print color:
none

Bruising:
none

Other information:
The smell of these is like very nice fresh mushroom smell.

Well, there are some smaller ones left there, so we'll just wait and see what they turn into. The point they broke off was about 2-3 inches into the dirt and it looked pretty solid and white like a stipe continuing further into the dirt.

They might be puffballs, but they might not - i only say because i see amanita buttons that look similar, which should not be eaten.  But I really have no idea, i am only just starting to learn about mushrooms.  But I'm sure you know enough not to eat them till you find out for sure what they are!

Ok, we found this one about 20ft from all the puff balls. This might help.

Amanita or Lepiota I'd say.

If you slice open your little buttons and there is the shape of a mushroom inside, you do not want to eat those.  Slice top to bottom, 'warts' to root.  People have died mistaking such things for puffballs.

Here is a sample with a different color - these are not puffballs, they are baby amanitas of some kind. I don't know what kind, or what you have, but there are many warnings about such things.
