Thought that this was a carbon ball, but not sure as it is silver. My tutor suggested maybe a cocoon.


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

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

Nice first post Adrianne. Keep your eye on it, as it will burst and dispel spores. More photos!

There is actually 3 all together, so I have added the photos of the other two. The largest silver one is slightly damaged, and appears to be full of brown spores. I will have a closer look in the sun light tomorrow, and photos if I see something interesting.
