Very slimy, dark brown/greenish bell-shaped cap with a small hole with a white rim at the top of the cap. White, spongy, hollow stalk. The first two images are of the same stinkhorn – the cap was very wet. The 3rd image is of a stinkhorn (dry cap) that was in a different patch of mulch, approximately 10 feet from the other one. They were both approximately 5 inches long.
Spotted growing in mulch in a semi-rural area. I had seen them growing upright in the mulch the night before, but it was too dark to take pictures of them. When I went back the next morning, they were slumped over – it had been a very cold night with frost, so maybe the low temperatures made them fall over?
