I have seen a number of stink horns ether yellow or orange instead of the usual red. I was told its due to a nutrient deficiency.

That’s wot I thought too…

A yellow C. ruber?

Were these sort of old? The columns are usually red in this species.

I love finding these guys, as long as I can stay upwind!
