Small Giant Puffball ?
    #3117469 - 09/10/04 04:55 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hi,

yesterday I went for a walk to the near fields and I found a mushroom that looks like a small giant puffball ( calvatia gigantea ).
The only thing that makes me a bit unsure about the id is that it grows a bit later and is smaller(younger) then the other giant puffballs here around.
It also did not grow directly in the fields where they normally grow, but in the scrub close to these fields.

Here are two pics:






What do you think ?

It sure looks like one. A cross section should verify that it's a puffball.

Happy mushrooming!

Thanks for the id.
The cross section showed a harder skin that you could peel away and very firm white flesh.
