These are the reproductive structures of this fungus, growing up to 10 centimetres in diameter with a hard, scaly outer rind. When ripe, they release fungal spores. This fungus is poisonous, causing nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea if ingested. It is found growing in woodland areas. Photographed in the Peak District National Park, UK.
