The earthball - Scleroderma citrinum is technically a fungus, not a mushroom. This is VERY POISONOUS. I am fairly certain that all of these photographs are of earthballs, but I am open to comments from experts!
This Earthball was photographed at Purgatory Chasm.
These next earthballs were in my garden with the squash.
This one was also in the garden, at a different time.
Please do not eat any of the items I mention on the site! I am not an expert. Always talk with an expert before eating any mushroom or plant.
