I found a few mushrooms like this back in late November. Unfortunately it was getting dark, so I had to use the flash on my phone. Any idea what it could be? It burst open like a flower. In River Legacy Park, home of the super-rare Devil's Cigar. Any chance?

I believe those are earth stars. I haven't spent much time on the ID, but I see those (or something very similar) in the hill country pretty regularly. Along with cup fungi, they seem to be a good early indicator for morels.

Thanks for the info. I checked out earth stars and that may be what they were. When I looked for the them a few days later they were too dried up to identify. I'd really like to come across the Devil's Cigar sometime, guess I'll have to keep looking.
