Observation 141201: Wynnea americana Thaxt.

Notes:
Convulsed during removal of leaf litter which nearly obscured it, sending smoky waves of spores into the air. Site was extremely shady, requiring contrast enhancement of photographs.

Dried fruit body was very hard, even after soaking in 70% ethanol

It is the second time I have seen it, the first time I have seen it in the field.

Nice find Martin!
