| Apioperdon pyriforme
|These images show the various stages of development of Apioperdon
pyriforme, the pear-shaped puffball. Grows from wood. Rhizomorphs
(root-like structures) always present. Rather common and can be found
during summer and fall. Edible. If you are in the woods and starving, they
will probably taste really good. Formerly known as Lycoperdon pyriformis.
