On the dates of report of C.geaster in Japan
I was eager to know when and where in Miyazaki, Japan C.geaster was first found, and finally got an article after kind of long fruitless searches. Since the source is The Miyazaki Nichinichi Shinbun(宮崎日日新聞), it should be reliable. According to the article, the mushroom was first found in 1937 in the vicinity of the village of Suki ,and thirty-six years later(in 1973) in Tano, Miyazaki. --Sateros (talk) 01:19, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
Is this a poisonous fungi? If so, it ought to be mentioned in the article. If it's edible, some information regarding how it's eaten may be good, too. ···日本穣? · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe 04:41, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
I'd love to include this information, but none of the sources have any information on edibility. I guess not too many people want to attempt eating a rare fungus that hisses and blows smoke :) Sasata (talk) 05:00, 9 December 2009 (UTC)
I think it's obvious that the sample is a young specimen before swelling into "a rugby ball". And since dehisce means "to burst open" it has to be a Texas star after dehiscence.--Sateros (talk) 11:48, 20 August 2010 (UTC)
