Edibility, habitat and observations
Relationship with the surrounding plant environment: saprophytic mushroom.
It is found in the woods, in groups.
Edible when young, when the gleba is white.
Much like is the Lycoperdon furfuraceum, which stands out for the easy removal of the grainy ornaments (less showy than the spines of the perlatum) and for the pink tones on the top of the surface.
Lycoperdon are a genus of Macromycetes characterized by globular carpophores. The flesh (gleba), initially whitish, when ripe becomes dark and dissolves into dust that comes out of the open carpophore in various ways. They are almost all edible, as long as the gleba is white.
