Description:

The raised scales lead me to believe that these are Common Earthballs and not Scaly Earthballs (Scleroderma verrucosum).

Identifications

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.
