As a gift to Tanay, for his interest in the field of Fungi/mushroom and other flora, i am sending these pictures of mushrooms in separate mails.See the gill (will) power of this puffball mushroom, breaking open even rigid tar road, to see the world above soil. Taken by Suma at FRLHT campus in Bangalore.I respect it, while people like to kick it and play!

Some earlier relevant feedback:
Puffballs encompass the genera Calvatia, Calbovista, Lycoperdon. I think this may be Calvatia cyathiformis ?
