@JackSkrceny. Will do thank you Jack
Hi Joel. I posted a picture of your fungus on the "Fungi Magazine" site on Facebook, to help Id it. Taylor Lockwood, a world renowned Mycologist and Photographer, has taken an interest in it and asked if you would contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org with your pictures and any more information you can provide. Thank you very much for your input, and by the way, very nice find. .....Jack Skrceny
This looks like a crossing between Clathrus ruber and Phallus impudicus...
I'm thinking Lysurus periphragmoides
Here you go:Hi Janet, Your mushroom appears to be a Clathrus, possibly Clathrus chrysomycelinus ( Basket fungus ) Also part of the Stinkhorn family. Not a real common mushroom to the U.S. although it has been found in Arizona too. I want to dig into this a little further, and if anything changes I'll let you know.Jack Skrceny ( Mushroom Jack )
It was the only one I saw
I did, it was in a wooded wetland preserve near Corpus Christi
and you found this in Texas?
Almost looks like a type of Morel but not. I am hoping to get an answer and will post if I do.
Now that is one odd mushroom. I will try to see if I can find it. But hope you get an ID soon.
