I see these pods occasionally, but the other day a pasted under a tree that had them everywhere under it.
I have no idea what they are, I just now if you kick them they go POOF and powder goes everywhere.
Anyone know what they are?

Top side, they appear to have been an enclosed pod that was split open.




Bottom side, this one is about as big as a softball, most are baseball size.
