|[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
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
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!

Very good shot Christophe. Excellent detail. Nice post with good details. Well done
Christophe, Like the composition and the great textures seen in your Scleroderma. Focus is a wee bit soft (no fill flash?) but overall an excellent post with an exceptional note.. Well done!
Nice close up, it could have been a bit more sharp.
