Calvatia gigantea

Common Name: Giant Puffball

Synonyms:

Substrate: Ground

Interior Surface: White when fresh, becoming greenish with age

Comments: 

A very large white puffball, these are often hard to miss in the woods. If you see one, there are often more around. I usually see them about the size of a human head, but they can grow up to a meter across.
