These earth stars appear in the cold weather. They emerge sometimes within 24 hours. They are often not attached to the substrate which is a lawn near a maple tree. It appears that the rays lift the fungus which has matured underground. This might explain why many of the fruitings are not attached.
Any other thoughts on what is going on here would be appreciated.
