Your naming of the giant puffball is a little out of
date. More than 15 years ago the scientific name was
changed to 'Langermannia gigantea'. The reason was
that the Calvatia's have a sterile base, which is
missing in the giant puffball.

Quite a few super dinners there!
I remember a bit of a television programme here in the
UK where they collected over a dozen from one spot,
and had an amusing shot of one man trying to carry all
of them, and another shot outside the restaurant
unloading them by throwing them basket-ball fashion
across the pavement from the van to the door.
