On the second picture you can see the bite marks. Left by a slug?
It was found under a horse chestnut.
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.
I'm assuming it had no stem - in which case it could be a Giant Puffball Langermannia gigantea, and lots of creatures including slugs take advantage of them.
Hello! Yes, that's right, no stem and it was quite big, much bigger than a fist.
I looked up Giant Puffball and I am quite sure that's the one.
As a formal identification. Others can then either agree or offer an alternative.
Be quick, or the "predators" may beat you to it!
I just didn't want to get credit for your identification.
Never mind :)
For people who leap in with an identification, when someone else has suggested that the person who posted the observation should do so.
sorry i thought u were in doubt and it wasnt a new posting. my mistake. a.p.
