I thinks it's a common toad stool that has split. They probably all spore at the same time then split.

it probably started off round and split because of drought maybe.

You should submit that to a magazine.

Sheri, I think they look too perfectly formed to have just haphazardly split...but it could be. I just want them to have grown that way cause it is so unuaual and so pretty! LOL

I LOVE those pictures Diane - very well done!!!

I had to show them to Brian, because he knows waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much about all kinds of mushrooms! shock rolz notme Not that he uses ones he should not...

But he concurs with Sheri, that they probably were too dry, or even too wet from the humidity even though there hasn't been much rain, and split when opening up, spreading the spores.

I still think they are VERY COOL no matter what caused it! clap thumbup

Thanks all I went to look again ~ some of them do look split while others have very smooth sealed edges, I doubt I'll ever see that again,, I'm glad I got a chance to get pictures,, neighbors must have thought I'd lost my mind touched taking those pictures,, notme they are only on the curb side in the front of the house, I practically had to lay on the sidewalk to get a close up of those lol lol
I have the normal brown ones here and there and "toadstool" ones But again I've never seen these like this,, they could have split that's a good theory *< Brian and Sheri*, why
~~~
Jiffy My devils back bone has gotten huge this summer,, Both of them,, when I bring them in in the late fall they lose a lot of leaves,, but they sure did make a great come back.. I'll have to get pictures and post in cactus and succulents,, I was hoping it would bloom this summer,, I was told IF I were to put in ground it would,, why

Hello folks, I am not sure anyone asked directly but the second mushroom, the one with the kitty is a Russula they are easy to identify by the fact that the stalk is fleshy and snaps cleanly like a piece of chalk, in some cases you can hear the "snap". Far and away the most common mushroom depicted in art objects is the Amanita muscaria (Fly Agaric) this is the mushroom of Alice in Wonderland. It is readily identified by the white stalk with red cap spotted by white "dots" the dots are the leftovers of the "case" that protects the immature mushroom.

The first mushroom (the white one), although I don't know the genus off hand, looks like it belongs to the group of mushrooms called "earth stars". As they mature they open in a regular and identifiable pattern to release the spores inside. At any rate that's what I have to say about that, thanks for the pictures.

I did carry it around my neck but I won't do that anymore. The path we were on was full of roots and the camera was bouncing around and the lens cap came off. I don't want to scratch the lens. I need to get a basket for my bike. Just like the witch in the Wizard of Oz.
