OH MY GOD IM GONNA DIE WTF
    #948721 - 10/10/02 09:31 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

ok, there are  these freaky looking,  mushroom-like (is it a mushroom? I have no fucking idea) things in my backyard, they are about an inch wide, have almost no stem so they are only about 3/4 inch high, brownish-grayish, in the shape of a flower with several "petal" like things which curl down around the outside....
now, in this patch of weird flower-fungi, there are also furry yellow-brown balls... and it appears as though they are the immature "flowers" and that when they mature, the outside furry part opens and tears apart into the "petals".
the mature ones  have a hole in  the middle "ball" part,  and when I first saw them, I was like "hmmmm" and bent down to pick one, and it released a 'poof' of what I'm guessing were spores in my face :frown:
I can't take a pic of them, but I've done my best to draw a picture...

omg am I gonna die? wtf are these things/???

YES!

they were more light brown-gray and the centers were brown-gray too, not white

Possibly some sort of Geastrum? Possibly saccatum ?

You're not going to die if you get the spores shot up in your face, but thats a pretty funny story and funny post to read sorry...lol :smile:

I checked the url of that pic and went to the site... they look exactly like this



it says "Geastrum fimbriatum"

guess that answers my question

Guess its a form of Geastrum triplex.

Found in forest humus and under trees, usually hardwoods....

Never found an Earth Star before. They look crazy :smile:

some earth stars get big as hell, too.
like, standing 7 or 8 inches and shit.
very cool stuff.
in order for spores of most macrofungi to hurt you, you either have to inhale a large quantity of dense spore matter (like, several million) or have it directly in your eyes.  then its still highly unlikely that the species you're dealing with will cause any reacttion.
some puffballs have caused severe irritation of the eyes, and the belief that they cause blindness still persists.
some people exposed to spores of a particular species over time (mushroom buyers and workers in mushroom farms) develop severe debilitating illness in the lungs or on the skin....but that is unusual too.
neat shit. :smirk:
