any knowledgable fungi members on site
Tyne & Wear, United Kingdom
Ilaid my lawn out about five years ago after rotivating deeply and removing all weed roots and debris. But this year at one end I noticed two or three clumps of white fungi. they have a dome shape varying in size from from about three centimetres to about five centimetres, quite solid and no visible stem. Sorry I lack the knowledge to attach a photo.
Thanks Sid but unlike a field mushroom this oone has no visible stem the dome shape seems to come strait from the soil, if you break one away there is still a white circle left in the ground. the fungi is a very definite white not creamy.Thanks Owdboggy but I have seen puffballs which have a soft shell and filled with orange or brown spores and they have a visible stem. These are a solid dome completely white throughout.
