Observation 4050: Phallales E. Fisch.
When: 2007-09-08
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Came across these as I was digging in my garden today. They are obviously stinkhorn eggs, but I’m not certain what species. I would guess they are Lysurus mokusin. I’m hoping that I did not find all the eggs and I’ll get to see a mature one in the next few days.

I think this is the left over volval sack after something happened to rest of mushroom, but it also might have been damaged or eaten before it ‘hatched’.

They’re already dehydrated!

but if I find another egg I’ll try what Darvin suggests. I thought about trying it with the first one I found, but they all had some sort of cut from when I dug them up and I was worried that would interfere with their normal growth.

Add water and it will grow

Place the egg in a coffee cup lined with paper towels. Keep it moist and the stinkhorn will sprout and show its true colors!
I have done this; it works.
