When: 2014-08-29

Notes: This fungus was found growing in mulch underneath a pine tree about .1 miles away from the main road.

It had a very foul, feces smell to it.

This fungus was spongy overall, and it was hollow on the inside. It seemed to have emerged from an egg-like structure that was white on the inside and red on the inside. It had an elongated shape that could also be called a stinkhorn shape. The mature version of this fungus had a green brown slime coming off of the top of the stinkhorn structure.

The spores of this fungus were an oval shape, and they ranged from 5.3-6.5 × 2.3-2.6 micrometers.
