Fungi: Basidiomycota: Agaricomycetes: Boletales: Calostomataceae: Calostoma cinnabarinum Desv., 1809

Calostoma cinnabarinum – Red Slimy-stalked Puffball

Synonyms: Mitremyces cinnabarinus, Scleroderma callostoma.

Common names: Red Slimy-stalked Puffball, Hot Lips, stalked puffball-in-aspic.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Calostoma cinnabarinum is a species of gasteroid fungus in the family Sclerodermataceae, and is the type species of the genus Calostoma. It is known by several common names, including stalked puffball-in-aspic and gelatinous stalked-puffball. The fruit body has a distinctive color and overall appearance, featuring a layer of yellowish jelly surrounding a bright red, spherical head approximately 2 centimeters (0.8 in) in diameter atop a red or yellowish brown spongy stipe 1.5 to 4 cm (0.6 to 2 in) tall. The innermost layer of the head is the gleba, containing clear or slightly yellowish elliptical spores, measuring 14–20 micrometers (µm) long by 6–9 µm across. The spore surface features a pattern of small pits, producing a net-like appearance. A widely distributed species, it grows naturally in eastern North America, Central America, northeastern South America, and East Asia. C. cinnabarinum grows on the ground in deciduous forests, where it forms mycorrhizal associations with oaks.

Persian: قارچ خوشدهان سرخشنگرف, Russian: Красноустка киноварно-красная.
