This is from Orlando, Florida. Any suggestions on what it is?
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
A puffball named Pisolithus tinctorius. Please, see this website: http://botit.botany.wisc.edu/toms_fungi/jun2003.html

I looked at many pictures of Pisolithus tinctorius online, but never saw such obvious peridioles (spore packages).
very cool...i think however? that the Hamburger patty mushroom sounds a tad more...er...tasteful...lol
Very interesting! I had only heard the term peridioles used for birds nest fungi.
