Does this then expand the range of Laternea pusilla to the extreme south of South America? And the “season” as well?

I’m sure Michael Kuo would love this for the Stinkhorn Project: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/stinkhorns/index.html

It’s a stinkhorn of some sort.

Most likely a Clathrus species, but could it be a Laternea species?
