Driving home along the track I stopped to inspect this large whitish blob which hadn’t been there three days ago.
Was it a chunk of aged polstyrene, or yet another fungi that I’ve never seen before?
I didn’t touch it, but now realise I should have, for I can’t identify it in my fungi books. It doesn’t seem to fit anything exactly: maybe a sort of Calvatia?
Then the ridged lip made me wonder if it had fallen from a tree, but I hadn’t checked if it was attached to the ground, and it was undamaged. Even so, I still can’t work out what it might be.
Next trip out I checked, and yes, it was just sitting unattached on the ground.
How amazing that it hadn’t smashed when it fell from the nearby big grey gum where I assumed it had grown.
