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 taylor@mushroom.pro 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.

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.
