• The gasteroid fungi exhibit diverse fruiting bodies, but the spores always form and mature internally.
  • In the puffballs the spores form inside spherical-shaped bodies and are released either by wind or by raindrops.
  • The same clever mechanism has evolved separately in the earthstars which have a hard outer layer. This splits open in a star-like manner to reveal the puffball-like spore sack.
