Observation 8455: Staheliomyces cinctus E. Fisch.
When: 2008-02-04
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Young specimens form in a pink, egg-like sack composed of a 1-2mm fleshy, membranous outer layer surrounding the young mushroom. Fragrance was pleasant, floral, like a perfume, but only in the wild specimens. What was left of one of the “unborn” eggs after it hatched on a bedside table overnight was the expected putrescent smell characteristic to the Phallaceae.

Love the “Phallus interruptus” morphology of this one!
