Just sorting through a few pics and thought I’d post up. Found on the golf course I work at, some recent some not so. Not sure what they all are, some I know some I don’t but find them fascinating none the less. Cheers all.

A good selection there. Thanks for sharing. 

 

I will have a good look through and see which ones I can name and study those that I don't know. 

 

Fungi is a very interesting subject, I have to agree.

Had to stop the car and take a photo of these in a maize field.

 

I assume that it has recently changed from a grass meadow to crops, hence the presence of what I’m guessing is a giant puffball.

Sizeable fruitbodies. Not sure they are ‘giant puffballs’ (Calvatia gigantea) as they tend to be pure white and not scaly/dimpled like these. Possibly another puffball species. 

Sounds daft, but I take it that you looked underneath and ruled out they had gills?

Did ya take one for the pot ?

No, afraid not, eating unknown fungi is daft, as I’m sure you’ll agree, they were too perfect for smashing up, and I had to trespass into an agricultural field so was conscious of being watched.

 

Unusual to see something like that in a bare earth field?

Yeah relatively unusual to find that type of fruiting in an agricultural field as the mass of mycelium in the soil would be too disturbed to grow and put on such large fb’s. 

Agreed, eating unknown species is not clever.
