Unusual fungus

Observed: 17th November 2011 By: dogwalker
star shaped fungus

This was one of group of 20 - 25 fungi in various stages of development, starting as whiteish "ping pong balls" emerging from the grass, from which emerged this star shape and eventually collapsing over to one side before becoming brown and shrivelled.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

Mutinus elegans?

Perhaps is could be, Mutinus elegan, especially if they have an odour?
