This mushroom is one of the most common earthstars and can be found all across the globe. Young mushrooms are brown, spherical, cm about 1in wide, and attached to the ground at a single point. The one feature that separates them from other gastroid fungi at this stage is the presence of a small, conical area roughly at the top of the mushroom.

The mushroom remains attached to the ground and the arms do not lift the mushroom up. Unlike the Barometer Earthstar Astraeus hygrometricus , the arms of G. This mushroom is small for an earthstar, reaching a diameter of only cm roughly in with arms fully open.

A small, puffball-like structure rests in a shallow depression at the center of the arms. This part of the mushroom is roughly spherical, smooth, and brown to dark brown. The top of this sphere has a small conical section that sits in a slightly depressed ring. Usually, the ring is lighter in color than the cone and the sphere. If you cut open the spherical part in a young specimen, the interior will be white and solid. As the mushroom matures, the inside becomes brown and powdery. Like the interior, the spores are brown and powdery.

The spherical part of the earthstar contains the spores, which escape via a pore in the middle of the cone. Like puffballs, spore discharge occurs primarily when raindrops hit the top of the sphere. This helps the spores escape the stagnant layer of air near the surface of the ground and get into active air currents.

From there, the spores are carried by the wind to new habitats. Although it decomposes plant debris and is often found around stumps, it does not grow directly on coarse woody debris logs and the like. The mushroom is found in forests throughout the world and is widely distributed and common in North America. Look for this mushroom in the summer through the fall. In warmer climates, the G. There are a number of North American earthstars that look very similar to G.

It is also attached to its substrate all over the surface before it opens, so the young mushrooms and undersides of the arms of mature mushrooms are usually covered with dirt and other debris. To even consider eating it, you have to get very young fruiting bodies without open arms and that have not begun to produce spores.

However, one study from Brazil found that the earthstar contained a lot of beta-glucan, which has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and cytotoxic properties. Presumably, this study was prompted by people either using the mushroom medicinally or having a desire to use the mushroom medicinally. I do not recommend eating this mushroom because it is small and is apparently not culinarily interesting.
