Geastrum indicum, an Earth Star, used to be called Geastrum triplex. The fruiting body is round to flatenned or bulblike when young, the outer wall splitting at maturity into four to eight rays which unfold then bend under the spore case. The rays are thick, fleshy, pinkish to tan, and the upper surface cracks into patches. The spore case has no stalk, and is pale to dark tan. The spore masss is deep brown to smoky brown and powdery when mature. Common under hardwoods, especially in the cooler months. Geastrum indicum is supposedly edible when young.
