Earthballs - fungi

The zooming image above photographed 2009-01-28 south of Pt. Washington State Forest on Scenic Highway 30-A. The GPS coordinates are 30°18'42.2"N 85°5'54.4"W.

These plants were growing just south of the bike path and road in a vacant lot, an area previously cleared. These are fungi called earthballs. For identification, see http://www.hiddenforest.co.nz/fungi/family/sclerodermataceae/sclerodermataceae.htm. See a similar plant in Deer Lake State Park and a 2009 update.
