I came across this mystery mushroom in the woods next to our house. I’ve never seen anything like it and after several hours of perusing my mushroom field guides – still haven’t seen anything like it.
There were four or five of these growing in the wet leaf litter. I have no idea at what stage they are either, but it does seem to me that they aren’t as fresh as they could be. Did that change their shape so much that I can’t find what species they are in the guide books?
Each one is about 3 inches tall. Anyone have any ideas?
Notice the bug on this one!
