Chance discovery

clathrus

Clathrus ruber
Along Campus Drive, near the dish
April 14, 2014

Although I keep checking the usual haunts, I had not seen any clathrus in quite a while.
Then I discovered a rather sizeable outcropping in a new local.
They appeared quite suddenly - and by the next day this large one had completely collapsed.
