to discover, share and identify wildlife
7-9" tall, in a cluster of four, pure white veil (sometimes they are colored) and extremely smelly, like something large, long dead, and attracts flies. The cap is slimy, and there is a round hole in the top center.
These popped up beside my walkway, in disturbed soil, twice over an 8-month period. Surrounding area is rainforest trees and underbrush, including palms, vines and other trees I can't identify yet.
These have a horrendous stink, but their beauty more than makes up for it. Great conversation piece! There is a fly on the cap of the lower left mushroom in my photo.
