Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
could indeed be S. verrucosum, but I wondered about S.areolatum (Leopard Earthball).
The former likes sandy soils, according to Phillips, while areolatum likes damp bare ground.
Mind you, this one may not have read the book...
Thanks for your comment, I found a cluster of them just on the edge of a golf course. The soil was pretty wet and often remains so around the area I spotted it. I haven't seen a Leopard Earthball before and I don't think it is in any of my books so certainly couldn't rule it out. I'll do some research on the internet.
I agree with you on this I would have gone for Leopard Earthball,but I think we need more information on size,habitat example of one cut open as some are so similar
