including ones melting back into the earth but nurturing the growth of those way cool Asterophora lycoperdoides parasitic fungi! alas, i didn’t see those in the field, but Hugh smith got a great photo of ’em…

The reddening of the flesh was quite spectacular, and they continued to do so a week later at the BAMS meeting. Gotta love fungal show and tell.

Never saw red flesh before.

Everything I find is usually much older, and the flesh turns nearly black instantly, along with the gills and anywhere else it is touched. Cool.
