Different specimens but I think the same type. Growing out of leaf litter, mainly Beech - probably.
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.
Good photos but I'm not sure! Puffballs/Earthballs go through different phases and I'm confused!!
The more I know the more I realise I don't know
