Geastrum javanicum, growing in grass, Upper Allyn, April 22, 2017. Note the circular scar just below the apex, and the dark tan colour of the globe, features lacking in other earth stars. The exoperidium, the stars themselves, are thick with pinkish flesh, but with an outer colouring that is not usually as light as the one photographed here.

There are a variety of earthstars that grow in SE Australia.
