This puffball is made of at least four layers. I got it at the stage when the rays are becoming to differentiate. One layer stays on the ground as a saucer plate, attached to soil by mycelium. Second layer will be four white 'petal-like' structures that will become the erect rays/legs that will raise the third layer made also of four rays (They were overlapping the rays that become the legs. The beige ones.) which are attached to the neck, eventually breaking and falling off. This last four rays were protecting the spore sac (the beige ones form the first photo) After this, the neck is exposed. When old it darkens and hardens. In the last encounter, there was a set of 'twins' and one puffball that mature in an odd way. Mossy hardwoods.

This species has been blooming here since several weeks ago in the same area. Among grass and weeds. Backyard. This time, the examined specimen shows odd features: Cystidia are almost absent. Two preparations were made with the same result. The few cystidia from the edge of the gill were tapering and naked. The crystals are absent. They also had septa at lower part. Basidia are behaving odd also: 1-2-4 sterigmata were seen. Several basidia had only one sterigmata with a bigger spore! It smells a bit of chocolate. Cap 3.5 cm; stipe 3.2 cm x 6mm. Gills are decurrent and crowded. Stipe is fibrose and kind of flat. Spores 4.9-6.1 x 7.9-9.8 um. Basidia 9.8 x 27.6-37 um. This area of the backyard has been heavily poisoned against rodents.

On hardwood. Bruising. Side of rural road; side of Old Mondego River. Three characters to confirm its ID: Staining when injured and the presence of acanthocystidia (brush-like cells) and brown pseudocystidia thick-walled except in the apical part. No spores seen or basidia.

Small crust. Crumbly. Rusty color with a golden yellow margin. When cut it shows an old dark layer underneath. Seems to be an asexual form. Reproduction is by budding, in chains and also by growing on conidiophore. Conidia bunched like grapes. KOH dissolves its pigments into a golden-red tone and ornamentation disappear. Conidiophore have multiple septa. Side of rural road; on hardwood; among garbage.

Mossy hardwood. 2-2.5 cm long. The texture appearance is given by the combination of white and dark areas and the almost black spores spread on it. Some spores have one end thicker than the other. Spores mostly with two drops. The spore split goes from end to end on it.

Adustomyces lusitanicus, on Olea sp. It has hyphidia (which I thought it was cystidia) and dendrohyphidia. Tough to work on it because of the presence of crystals. I used KOH to dissolve it, then washed it and then added Kongorot. Pain in the neck! Spores kind of resemble Aulerodiscus sp. but lack ornamentation. Abrupt margin. Perennial. Mossy woods.

Among moss and under hardwoods. Park. I learned few things while observing it microscopically. The blue-green tone is given by the presence of lots of granules. The asci, paraphyses, spores and inner cells are clear. The inner cells are lighter. Paraphyses have a variable tip from slightly wider to a swollen one. Micro in Kongorot and Phloxine. Spore print was white. Paraphyses are branched; 2.9 um on the thin stack and up to 5.4 um on tip. Micro was done on the specimen at right of photo, which was 5.7 cm long; lower part was 3.2 cm x 2mm wide; upper part was 4.3 cm x 4mm wide.
