Column Stinkhorn

Clathrus columnatus


Stinkhorn with a gooey base, almost the consistency of uncooked egg whites. The mushroom was spongy and fragile and had 4 "arms." It didn't actually stinky; perhaps the smelly slime was mostly gone already.


The fungus was found under some oak trees among a lot of leaf debris in a neighborhood with lots of pasture.
