Notes:

A January day I spied this and thought it was a rare type of mushroom. However, it was not attached to the ground and was feather light, so is it a flower? It looks like a coral formation.

    I’ve recently been reading field guides for mushroom identification. This looks to me like the type of mushroom called an “Earthstar.”

    Could you post another picture of your palm side of this mystery? The object reminds me of an acorn but I have never seen the caps split like this.
