A few of these on the floor in a Birch woodland. When the ball was pressed, black dust flew out.
No stem was present.
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.
If I take it to be the most common Earthstar - which one is that!?
Should I keep checking the area to see if there are new ones coming out or is it too late in the year?
Sorry Bazzla, I didn't see your comment before adding my ID, if I had I wouldn't have added it.
I think this is Geastrum fimbriatum The Sessile Earthstar.
