Collared Earth Star

Geastrum triplex

One of the Puff Ball family, this Earth Star can be 8 cm across. As the outer global cover splits and turns down to push above the litter it breaks apart, leaving a collar around the spore sac. Found on the forest floor in the fall. See also the Barometer Puff Ball
