Earthstars are supposed to be common fungi and act something like barometers--popping up in low pressure periods before rain (it was rainy this morning & again now). Before today I'd never seen one before. Those that had already lost their spore cases looked like exploded acorns but I think they were probably Astraeus hygrometricus or a close relative.
