Miscellaneous, Montana Mushrooms News, Wild Foraging Mystery Mushroom June 23, 2010 Dean 4 Comments A friend sent this picture to me, and wondered what it was. Does anyone know what it is? Clue #1 : Grows on the ground Clue #2: A little puff of white dust (spores) that looks like smoke comes out when disturbed.

Hmmmm, I think I know what it is. Am I to assume that it’s quite wiggly? And perhaps designed to help trees hear better? 😀
Good guess! This one won’t pass the “shake” test though. After I posted it, I realized that it looks like several mushrooms, so clues will be provided. Keep guessing…
Well is it perhaps the Sacrospera crassa-Crown Cup?
Yes, you are correct. This interesting mushroom is related to the puff ball and sends out it’s spores in a little white puff that looks like smoke.
