Breaking news! New fungus discovered at Eagle Lake!

Whilst on my morning shroom hunt at the cabin today, I noticed this beautiful creature. The Googles told me that she's a Geastrum saccatum or Earthstar. Sarah and I were excited by the discovery, but I did find out that these fungi are pretty common in coniferous areas. We'll ask the Hawthorne resident mycologist for more information and get back to you with further details. Post by Courtney
