Scleroderma

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Scleroderma

Post by Flaxton » Mon Sep 09, 2019 10:59 pm

This Scleroderma has a stout stipe, a peridium c0.3 mm thick and has the reticulated spores. There are no species with all these features but S meridionale is the nearest but that does not seem likely with only one or two records from sand dunes and this was in woodland.
Thanks for any thoughts
