(literally "stomach fungi.  This class is polyphyletic, as such species—which include puffballs, earthstars, stinkhorns, and false truffles—are not closely related to each other. Because they are often studied as a group, it has been convenient to retain the informal (non-taxonomic) name of "gasteroid fungi".  Name former owner, Weber, neatly printed on from wrapper.  No other ownership marks and no signs of use.
