Notes: Hi, I recently was outside and saw this weird fungus (at least that’s what I think it is…). There is a weird amber colored secretion and behind the main portion on the ground, there is a gooey phlegm-like substance (you can see it in the photo with the close-up on my knife handle). I used my knife (Benchmade 940 Osborne if you’re curious) as a scale in the photos. Knife dimensions are: 3.4" blade, 4.47" handle, 7.87" overall.
Here’s some info:
-It has been extremely rainy and humid for 2-3 weeks now.
-This area of the house faces east and receives direct sunlight from sunrise until 11am.
-The cedar mulch is only about 1.5 months old.
-A week after the mulch was laid down, I had the perimeter of the house sprayed with insecticide.
After posting this on “The Science Forum,” it was suggested that I post it on here for verification and to help anyone who is in need of this information.
