Geastrum lageniforme ---- Flask Earthstar

 Geastrum lageniforme --- Flask Earthstar.


The small photo was taken on a very wet morning last week. It is good to see Earhstars starting to 'show'.  This is similar to G triplex -- Collared Earthstar but is much smaller. The rays are thick and look as if they may split but do not form a 'cup' as with triplex. It is very uncommon and a RDL species. This has been seen at the same spot in Pembrey Country Park for several years (not in 2015 which was a bad year for earthstars in Pembrey).
