    Am definately curious what this turns out to be? It looks like a type of Bolete but I've not personally seen a cap like this.....it actually looks like it's sporing out from the TOP of the cap..........how large was this? Do you remember what it was growing under/around? A moist area or woods or yard.......how long was it there.....

    It was in a light stand of trees near the edge of a pond. Some magnolias and some that I don't recall. (I just remember the red magnolia berries on the ground.) No undergrowth. Lots of rain the previous days.

    Maybe 2" in diameter.

    I only saw it the one time

    I looked at many pictures of Pisolithus tinctorius online, but never saw such obvious peridioles (spore packages).

    Thanks!

    Very interesting! I had only heard the term peridioles used for birds nest fungi.
