How large is this thing?

Schizostoma is very close to Tulostoma

These both mature before they break the surface and the stipe elongates. What I’m seeing here is a white (immature) spore mass. Full disclosure: I’ve only seen Schizostoma fully grown. http://mycoportal.org/... Also Schizostoma is a creature of the desert. I suck at geography, but Maine? Did you save this little mystery?

What do you think of Schizostoma as a possibility?

not sure what this is

If this were a Tulostoma mature enough to have an expanded stipe, then the spore mass would be completely mature(brown, reddish brown, etc.). Also there is no socket into which the stipe protrudes into the head. All Tulostomas have a socket of some sort. I’m stumped.
