    This is my favorite kind of fungi. One that lives in the ghost moth and is also used as a chinese medicine. Ophiocordyceps sinensis

    Hehe too easy for ya,now I know there's an interest I shall try and get more pics, I love all the freaky fungi I spot normally whilst walking the dog..Ps3 that's an odd one,seen it before but still double weird ,almost feel sorry for the little grub, what a nightmare it must be having.Fred the earthstars are really cool looking ,I like the way you caught them when they were just appearing. Johnny have you seen those puffballs in spore state when you can squish and puff em

    I've seen them in spore plenty of times, not that particular patch of them though.

    Well I suppose they must be puffballs then? Really wish I had taken some pics in the autumn (fall) there were some nice largish puffballs and plenty of other great looking fungi in my local woods.Now I'm on the lookout I will see what I can find.Pretty sure you can eat giant puffballs when they are young and fleshy, never tried them myself, then again you can eat fly Agaric if you boil out the toxins (or don't but it will be a very different experience)

    Yeah, they're definitely Puffballs and I think w03's guess of Lycoperdon pyriforme is correct. http://www.na.fs.fed.us/spfo/for_images/funimage.htm

    I'm reasonably sure that some species of earthstars are also edible. I saw them sold canned at a local asian food market - they were rubbery and tasted rather nondescript though.
