Host puffballs - Caenocara

Host puffballs - Caenocara
Windham, Rockingham County, New Hampshire, USA
September 9, 2005
These are puffballs of the species from which I extricated a number of puffball beetles. The one on the left is mature and has ruptured to release the spores. This is the stage at which I gathered the contents of several puffballs to search for beetles.
