Went back and discovered the eggs. Found this species in the same location last year. An interesting look at this Phallus species in its primordial stage!

..hundred yards away. Same substrate. I’ve seen plenty of cespitose Stropharia in the area but never mutated like this. I’ll try to remember to add an update after I go back to the location. I have a samples available if someone would like to look at it.

to your Stropharia were these found? They might be very young clustered S. that have somehow grown together because they are so close together. Strong rhizomorphs also suggest Stropharia. Were these growing on similar substrate?

i was tempted to call it Plantae until noticing what looks like rhizomorphs all over it. no cross section?

Bizarre.
