[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
Synonymous: scleroderma vulgare, scleroderma aurantium,

Hat: sphere or shape sometimes stretched out and seeming then a potato, sometimes covered of a tough envelope of cream-colored color to fawn or brown clear of 3 to 15 cm, covered of small scales, slightly depressed to the summit

Blades: nothing

Ring: nothing

Foot: nothing: anchored in soil by filaments (spawn) appearing to be its roots

Exhalation: unpleasant at the time of "the bursting"

Period of picking: of the summer to the fall

Biotopes: in woods aired of foliate, of conifers, to the border of these, very close to the slopes and paths and even on the moors, sometimes on the basis of trunks of trees, notably of chestnuts

Confusions: warty scléroderme

Family: gastéromycètes

Scientific name: scleroderma citrinum

The white flesh becomes blackish while aging and the envelope explodes then to swarm the spores. One finds it the most often in groups of 2 to 3 individuals. Staying a long time there, it sometimes takes a greenish hue under the effect of the acidity of the atmosphere. Near cousin of the warty scléroderme, it is also toxic and don't inspire the gourmets besides!
