Lycoperdon Perlatum. Known as puffball, it belongs to the family Agaricaceae. It is a medium-sized puffball, 1.5 to 6 cm (0.6 to 2.4") wide by 3 to 7 cm (1.2 to 2.8") tall. When mature it becomes brown, and a hole in the top opens to release spores. It grows in fields, gardens, and along roadsides, as well as in grassy clearings in woods. It is edible when young although care must be taken to avoid confusion w immature fruit bodies of poisonous Amanita species.
